Customer Question

Hi, I think that I got my question answered by reading the site. Our dog just ate some "RID-X", which is a septic system treatment. It contains: Bacteria cultures, Enzymes, Micronutrients and wheat bran. My best guess is that she ate about half a cup (hard to tell, we are dealing with a french mastiff!) She is about 100 lbs. Right now, she is acting normally. Which for her, means she is panting and looking for something to do wrong... It happened less then ten minutes ago.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Maya
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Maya?
Customer: nope

Hello, I'm Dr Gary. I've been practicing veterinary medicine since 2007. I look forward to helping with your questions/ concerns.

As I'm sure you read, this is not usually going to cause an issue.

You can see some GI upset from the irritation in the gut. This may lead to some nausea, drooling, diarrhea or cramping. These signs should resolve on their own over 8-12 hours. You shouldn't see any true toxicity signs. You can continue to feed and offer water normally.

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

In a big dog like this, I would be surprised if you see any signs.

You're very welcome. Happy to help.
