Hello, and welcome.

My name is***** I am an experienced small animal veterinary surgeon and I will be very pleased to work with you today and will try my best to answer your question to your satisfaction.

1. The great thing is that you have quite large dogs, I have checked out their weight against the toxicity of the drugs you mention. The good news is that even if one of your dogs ate one probiotic + one low dose aspirin + the 2 Pentasa all at once then there would be nothing to worry about as this is well below any toxic dose.

2. There is nothing special you need do in these circumstances except just keep an eye on your dogs, they should be just fine ...

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,

Dr Scott

Hello again,

I am just checking back in to see how your dogs are getting on after our recent dialogue concerning the human drugs they may have taken.

How are things going?
