Customer Question

My dog ate some puzzle glue. Like, most of the 50mL (1.5 oz)tube. Some of the bottom of the tube is shredded so I assume she ate some of that as well.
It's "Dab'NStic". It says it's non toxic, washable, and acid free.

Rachele, according to the MSDS sheet for this product (please see here: http://cdn.dick-blick.com/msds/DBH_SDS_238431001.pdf) ingestions should be treated by diluting the product with water or milk; in other words, encouraging your dog to drink tasty liquids in the form of milk, cream, broths, or bouillons. According to Small Animal Toxicology, 2nd. Ed, Hovda, etc., 2016, only minor gastroistestinal distress is expected. A dog the size of a border collie X should be able to pass pieces of the tube through her GI tract uneventfully.

Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
