Reply to Tammy Falkner's Post: mabye 1/2 a 1.5 once tube and this evening sometime right now she seems fine
here is a list of the ingredients in A&D ointment

INGREDIENTS:
Active Ingredients:
Petrolatum 53.4%, Lanolin 15.5%.
Inactive Ingredients:Cod Liver Oil (Contains Vitamin A, Vitamin D), Fragrance, Light Mineral
Oil, Microcrystalline Wax, Paraffin

I am not a chemist but at the very worst, she may vomit. The rest of the ingredients are rather 'ordinary.'

I will research the PETROLATUM to be sure

Petrolatum is petroleum jelly.   In such a small quantity there should not be a problem

Diaper rash creams/ointments such as Desitin/A&D ointment have a very low level of toxicity contrary to warning labels on the product. Here again, this product usually only causes oral/stomach upset.


If it does present some stomach upset, you should talk with your vet about using a dose of immodium to control diarrhea and vomiting.


Most of the ingredients in this product are harmless. It's a lot of oils, wax, fragrance and a little lanolin and petrolium jelly (petrolatum).


Let me know if you still have questions.
