Hello. Thanks for writing in.
How long ago was this ingestion?
Any abnormal signs seen so far?
Was this diluted or in its concentrated form?
concentrated vomited a little. passing gas. a little anxious
Thanks for the information. This product can be very irritating to the mouth, esophagus and stomach. In fact it can create severe ulcerative lesions. Those lesions can even be bad enough to cause a perforation in the stomach, which is a deadly issue. When diluted, it is not as much of a problem. I would try to get him to drink as much water or milk as you can and get him to your nearest emergency vet for a full evaluation, medication to stop vomiting and medication to protect the esophagus and stomach. I would not induce vomiting. If any ulcerative lesions are forming and close to perforating, the pressure created by vomiting could cause more severe problems. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Hope this helps.
