Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello, I am sorry to hear what happened . My name is***** am a veterinarian and will do my best to help. Did he just chew it, or did he actually eat the tube?
I am doing research, and am not finding much about this drug in dogs. It seems to be pretty safe from what I can find, so if he only chewed the tube and got a little of it I am not too worried. I will continue to research.
If he got the entire tube, then I might consider inducing vomiting just to be safe, if he got it in the last hour or so.
More research, veterinary dermatolgists are using this to treat dogs with a skin condition called actinic dermatitis, and so those dogs would probably lick and ingest some of the medication, and there are no reports of problems with that . So, if he only chewed the tube, I would probably no induce vomiting if he were mine.
Let me know what else I can research for you, and how he is doing. Kindly consider rating my answer so the website knows to credit me for helping you. Rebecca
I was worried because I wondered if he had actually eaten the tube itself, which would be more concerning than the medication. I am glad to see you found the information you needed. Rebecca
