Customer Question

My teacup yorkie got ahold of a small bottle (1/8 ounce) of NailTek Nail Nutritionist Keratin Nail Treatment Oil. Somehow she got the top off of it and was chewing on the applicator brush. I am not sure if she ingested any, but it happened 30 minutes ago and she appears to be acting normally. Should I be worried?

Hello again

I have worked out an answer for you below ...

1. I would very much doubt if this incident will affect your Yorkie in terms of toxicity, the chances are she will not show any adverse symptoms of any sort. However a few dogs might experience a mild transient dose of vomiting and / or diarrhoea, but that's about it.

2. That said I should be available online for you the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me in the unlikely event that your Yorkie's condition changes in any way or you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,

Dr Scott
