Hello again Terri,

I have worked out an answer for you ...

1. I have checked out the typical ingredient list online. As long as it was only a few licks then I would doubt very much that this will cause your dog any harm. You may perhaps see a mild transient bout of vomiting and/or diarrhoea but that's about it. There is nothing special you need do in this sort of situation but the milk may well help settle his stomach.

2. Of course if more serious symptoms do occur then you should have your dog checked over by a vet without delay, but this would be unlikely.

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
