Customer Question

I caught him chewing on an ecig plastic refill bottle. I think he may have ingested a few drops. Is there anything I can do at home, or signs to watch for poisoning?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Did you see what the dog ate?
Customer: There was a hole in the bottle and my husband said there was a tiny amount of nicotine juice in the bottle.
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?
Customer: He's a 3 month old puppy
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help you today.I'm sorry for this concern for your puppy. I do have a few additional questions to ask first if you don't mind: 1. How much does he weigh?2. If there was only a small amount of nicotine juice in the bottle, could he have ingested more than you think?3. How long ago did this happen? There may be a slight delay after I receive your answers since I have to type up a response to you. Thanks for your patience. Deb
