Hello, my name is***** and I will do my best to help you. I'm reviewing your question now and I will post back to you ASAP.

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 1 month ago.

Pine sol for home use is not toxic. However Pine sol for commercial use does have higher phenols in it which can cause problems.

Was yours a household product?

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 1 month ago.

The commercial strength can cause sores in the mouth and tongue. It also can cause kidney damage.

Look inside Sophie's mouth to check for sores on the gums and tongue. If you see that give her some milk to dilute the Pine sol.

And tomorrow take her to your vet to test her kidneys.

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 1 month ago.

Do not try to induce vomiting because if there is still any Pine sol in her stomach she might inhale some which can cause severe lung inflammation.

Is there anything else that she could have gotten into?

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 1 month ago.

I'm afraid that i have to log off for the day in 2 minutes.

I'm sorry that we were not chatting so that I could help you better.

If she is still feeling poorly tomorrow be sure to take her to your vet.

Good luck to you and Sophie.

How is Sophie today? I hope that she is feeling much better. Let me know.

Thank you,

Dr Marta
