Customer Question

My 6 month old puppy just ingested a quarter to half of women's body glide. I didn't notice the container until after her dinner. She ate and drank normally. The ingredients are listed as follows:
Ingredients:

She seems fine. Is there anything to be concerned about?

Like most cosmetic products there are no significant toxins in that product. Ingesting so much of it, however, is likely to cause at least transient gastrointestinal distress in the form of inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea. There's no specific antidote and so we encourage fluid intake in an attempt to dilute those ingredients. Encourage fluid intake by offering milk, cream, bouillons and broths. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
