Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health 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 again,I have very quickly worked out an answer for you below ...1. This is potentially a serious situation since ingestion of dishwasher pods can cause ulcers and burns of the mouth, throat, esophagus, and stomach due to the severe alkalinity of this type of product.2. Rather than inducing vomiting your best plan is to contact an ER vet without delay they will be able to remove the detergent from the stomach via stomach tube and give prescription medicines such as Sucralfate which can greatly reduce the chances of damage to your dog's alimentary tract.
3. 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 Chloe'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.
