Ask a Vet and Get Your Veterinary Questions Answered.
Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you and your pet today. I am a veterinarian with over 25 years experience and would be happy work with you.
Can you tell me how long ago this happened?
Has he had any GI upset or vomiting?
about 45 minutes to an hour ago.
There are no toxic properties to bar soap ingestion. At most, there may be some vomiting or diarrhea, which helps to remove the irritating substance anyway.
I would not offer any food for the next twelve hours or so. Limit water to small amounts at a time so as not to stimulate vomiting.
Keep him in a place that is easy to clean if vomiting or diarrhea occurs!
I hope it doesn't.
ok I'm grateful for your advice. He just ate a 1 1/2 cups of his food about 20 minutes prior. Just FYI...do you think he needs to be watched overnight?
No, this is not a major concern. I would not be too surprised if he vomits, but I don't think he needs to be watched overnight.
It is always the Labs!
Isn't that the truth..... thank you very much, goodnight
You are very welcome and I hope everyone in your household has a restful night. Please let me know if there is anything else I can do for you tonight.
Thank you for the follow up. All is well here....I noted a slight decrease in his desire for activity even after waking the next morning. Worked him back to full size meal over a day and a half. No vomiting or diarrhea....he /we were lucky this time.
Thanks again for the advice and follow up!
