Hello again and thanks for waiting. I have worked out an answer for you below ... 1. One of the best things you can do in this sort of situation is to make your dog sick immediately and try recover the drug that way, If you can do this within the first hour after ingestion then things may be OK . For the sake of speed I will give you a link on how to do this best ***** you fail to make your dog sick you should contact your vet without delay as an antidote may be available depending on the ingredients you are dealing with. 2. If your dog swallowed a very tiny amount it should be OK, but do not take any chances as this is a very insidious type of poison. Better safe than sorry, contact your vet ASAP if you do not manage to induce vomiting or if you are in any doubt. I hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you. Regards, ***** be kind enough to rate my service to you after we have concluded our dialogue, such feedback helps me maintain the quality of my answers.
