Customer Question
My kitten drank water...

My kitten drank water from the Christmas tree that contains Miracle Gro for Christmas trees. I can't find info on ingredients or an msds sheet for this product.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with your kitten?

She's fine for now, but I need to make sure the miracle gro for Christmas trees is not toxic

Veterinarian's Assistant: Did you see what your kitten ate?

She drank Christmas tree water with miracle gro for Christmas trees in the water

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your kitten?

No, she seems ok

Here's the MSDS sheet: http://eldoradochemical.com/MSDS_Sheets/EDC/Third_Party_Products/MIRACLE_GRO_ALL_PURPOSE_PLANT_FOOD_24-8-16.pdf

These inorganic fertilizers are considered of very low toxicity to our pets. Transient gastrointestinal disturbances - inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea - are possible but there's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

Thank you, I'll keep an eye on her.
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
She went straight to the food and ate after her tree water. If she vomits or anything, I'll contact you guys again.
