I think she ate rat poison about 4 days ago. I'm very remote

Customer Question

I think she ate rat poison about 4 days ago. I'm very remote and cant get to the vet until Monday.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Did you see what the dog ate?
Customer: I found two packages of empty D-con in the front yard. Same day she escaped the back yard. That was Tuesday, shes been sick all day today.
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?
Customer: Not that I know of, she's only 6 months old.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.
