Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
1) How much did each dog consume and how much do they weigh? 2) Was the bottle also ingested? 3) Any vomiting or diarrhea?
The bottle itself is a risk of blocking the intestines. If this was chewed up or shredded, the risk is lower. Iodine itself can also cause GI upset, but shouldn't cause anything more than some vomiting and diarrhea. The bottle is the biggest risk. I would urge you to keep a close eye on both of them for the days that follow. Feed higher fiber with there food in the form of boiled rice or pure canned pumpkin at each meal to help the bottle pieces travel through. Once you've hit the 5 day mark post-ingestion, you should be in the clear and the bottle pieces should have passed. Monitor the stools well during this time. If vomiting, diarrhea, cramping, inappetence or no stool being passed occurs, it's time to see your vet.
