hello

Scott Nimmo :

I have just looked things up, good news! This should be no problem a one time ingestion of this drug would not cause any serious side effects to your dog. Mild digestive upsets are possible but no more than that ...

Scott Nimmo :

All you need do is to keep an eye on your dog ...

Customer:

ok, thank you for the response. I'll watch her closely

Scott Nimmo :

However this is adrug not used in dogs so if you want to be 100

Scott Nimmo :

%

Scott Nimmo :

So if you want to be 100

Scott Nimmo :

Sorry for the typing, what I meant to say is that if you want to be 100% sure and less than one hour has passed then some owners would induce vomiting to recover the drug as a further precaution. For the sake of speed I will give you a link on how to do this best. LINK

Scott Nimmo :

I think your dog will be fine anyway but I have to inform you of all the options ...

Customer:

OK, thank you for this

Scott Nimmo :

No problem, very glad to have advised you ...
