Jill, according to the MSDS sheet of that product, it may cause oral/esophageal burns if tablets are placed directly in the mouth without water. If ingested, vomiting shouldn't be induced and it should be "diluted" by overfeeding and offering favored fluids such as milk, cream, broths or bouillons. May I have an update on your dogs, please?

Thank goodness. If they're not symptomatic by now, there's no reason to believe that they'll become so. If either begins to show evidence of GI distress - inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea, administering an over the counter antacid such as famotidine (Pepcid) at a dose of 0.25 mg/lb once should afford them some comfort. Please continue our conversation if you wish.
