Customer Question

Hello. Thanks for the question.

This dose of ingestion (50 mg/kg) is well below the dose that it takes to cause liver toxicity in dogs. That dose is 100 mg/kg. With this ingestion, we can see some GI upset (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea). I wouldn't expect these signs to last more than 12-24 hours.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.

I don't have to take her to a vet? Do I force her to drink water
Expert:  Dr. Gary replied 9 months ago.

I would offer water as you normally would. You don't have to force it. You don't need a vet for this, though.
