Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hi,I'm Dr Scott. Welcome to JustAnswer, I am working on your question now, you can expect a written reply sometime within the next ten minutes or so.
Hello againI have worked out an answer for you below.1. This is probably not such a serious situation, I have read accounts where dogs that have eaten entire ammonium nitrate ice packs and only suffered moderate vomiting and diarrhoea with no lasting damage. Hopefully Ruby did not swallow much.2. All you need do for now is to thoroughly flush out your dog's mouth with lukewarm water and then just monitor her for present, then giving her some milk may help settle her stomach.3. Of course if any odd or unexpected symptoms do occur then you should have her checked over by an ER vet without delay. But in any case 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 if the very unlikely event that Ruby's condition changes in any way or you would like to talk things over with me further.Regards,Dr ScottPlease be kind enough to rate my service to you after we have concluded our dialogue, such feedback helps me maintain the quality of my answers.
