We just bought a polar pooch cooling mat for our german

We just bought a polar pooch cooling mat for our german shepherd that weighs about 60lbs. We left him alone with it for about 10 minutes, and he destroyed it. When we came back to check on him he was lying on the other side of the room waiting for us to return. I do not know how much of the gel he could have gotten a hold of. We immediately threw it away and cleaned up the "water" on the floor which was a decent amount. It has been about an hour and a half ago. He is not showing any signs of illness. We did not see the tiny paper in the box that said if the gel was consumed to contact a vet immediately. Evertything on the box says that it is non-toxic.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Did you see what the pooch ate?Customer: what do you suggest?JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the pooch?Customer: He is a stray we have had for about 3 months. He is heartworm positive. He has been to our vet, had vaccines, given heartguard every months, and flea preventative.

I recently moved across the country to Portland Oregon with

I recently moved across the country to Portland Oregon with my 95 pound coonhound/malamute, Parker. Parker has been sluggish and depressed the past 3 weeks since we arrived in Portland, but every once in a while over the past week or so, she's her old self....getting into everything and super playful. Not once in past 4 weeks has she turned down a walk. She loves her way! On Friday...2 days ago...I took her to meet potentialnew vet and to gethe laptop vaccinat6,as she was due. Vet noted good health at checkup and administered vaccine. Parker was fine (tired) that evening and all day yesterday into this morning. This afternoon she's gotten very weak, does not want to walk, had to be encouraged to come to eat dinner (she ate all, but normally she's so excited about dinner time that she runs in circles a whimpers while I get it), and seems to only feel comfortable walking 30-40 feet and then lays down.I can tell she doesn't feel well at all. No vomiting, no diarrhea. Not panting and heartbeat feels normal. I don't have a thermometer, so I can't take temperature.I'm concernedit may be reaction to lepto vaccine. She's never had problem before, but new vet in new region....could vaccine be different? I don'twant to rush off to emergency clinic if I'm overreacting
