Hello, my name is***** and I have over 20 years of experience as a veterinarian. I am sorry to hear that your fellow chewed through a plastic bottle of herbicide and ingested some.
I do have some questions for you.
What is the name of the product and the name of the active ingredient in the product?
Did he ingest the plastic too?
How big is your dog?
How much time has elapsed?
Does your pup have any history of chronic illnesses?
How is he feeling now? Any drooling, nausea, vomiting or tremors/staggering?
Thanks for your patience with my questions, the answers will help me give you a more thorough answer.
Expert:  Dr. Kara replied 1 year ago.
Also how much of the product do you believe he ingested (tablespoon, cup)?

I was checking for my son...as its his dog. While I was trying to gather the info you requested, He reached his own vet. So, no longer in need of your services today, but thank you! Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to you as well, we moms are always trying to help our sons out! I am glad that he was able to reach his own veterinarian and I will forward this to customer service to work with you and get your deposit refunded.
