Hello, my name is***** and I will help you.

Read the label of the injection fluid and tell me what is in it. Is it Benzene or toluene?

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 9 months ago.

Also how long ago did this happen?

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 9 months ago.

Was it Ether starting fluid?

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 9 months ago.

Well, you don't seem to be there.

Hopefully Porsha is OK.

Volatile compounds can be toxic.

If she just bit into the bottle without getting more than a taste she should be all right.

If she shows any problems like vomiting, even after a few days take her to see your vet and take the container with you.

I hope that this helps you.

You can email me in the morning and I'll get back with you during the day.

Hello, I hope that Porsha is fine. It's amazing what dogs will get into.

Watch for vomiting for 5 more days. With those volatile compounds signs of toxicities can take days to show. But it didn't sound like she got too much exposure.

I'd really like it if you let me know how she is.

Please take a sec to rate this service.

Thanks,

Dr Marta
