Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello, my name is***** and I have over 20 years of experience as a veterinarian. I am sorry to hear that your girl has diarrhea.
I do have some questions for you.
You say she ate a teaspoon of "flux" did ypu mean flax seed?
How is she feeling otherwise? Appetite normal and normal energy level?
Any long term health issues?
How long ago did this occur?
Ah, thanks very much.And how long ago did this occur?
Do you have any 3% hydrogen peroxide?
There are many types of flux (I had no idea). Some are relatively harmless, but others contain high levels of lead, or zinc and some contain acid in the paste. If this has any sort of acid we do not want her to vomit it back up and frankly 2 hours later it may already be out of her stomach.
Do you have a list of ingredients?
Ok, to be safe I do not recommend inducing vomiting
Let's try to coat her gastrointestinal tract try to get this absorbed and out of her body.
Give me several moments to type up my recommendations.
That's fine. They will likely want you to call poison control, here is the info for that:
