Customer Question

Hi, my dog has an upset stomach. In Europe, we treat is usually with Aluminum Phosphate, but I cannot find an equivalent here. It's night and he suffers. Any idea which (human) medicine I could give him ? We have been up for hours, but the vet won't open for another 5 hours... Thanks!

Hello Alexander.

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.

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.
