You're speaking with Dr. Michael Salkin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm currently typing up my reply.

Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 9 months ago.

Minor and transient gastrointestinal distress as evidenced by inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea might arise but Krawl is going to remain safe. The heavy petroleum distillates such as motor oil/grease are rarely ingested in sufficient amounts to cause the more serious central nervous system signs of tremors and seizures. I recommend diluting however much Krawl ingested by feeding him and offering tasty liquids such as milk, cream, borths, or bouilons. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
