Dr. Altman :

Welcome! I am Dr. Altman, a licensed veterinarian and happy to answer your questions today.

Dr. Altman :

The concern with these tablets is the caustic or burning nature to the gi tract

Dr. Altman :

It is a concern she has vomited because it can cause damage to the esophagus

Dr. Altman :

At this point please ensure she is drinking plenty of water and if you notice any blood in the vomit or her stool please seek a veterinary er in your area

Dr. Altman :

In general these have primarily gi side effects of vomiting and diarrhea but if it causes stomach or esophageal ulcerations it can become more serious

Dr. Altman :

Plenty of water would be used to dilute the polident in her gi tract and "flush" it out

Dr. Altman :

But if you do note any more serious side effects and/ or the vomiting continues please seek a veterinary er in your are

Dr. Altman :

aera

Dr. Altman :

Oops, area

Customer:

OK, thanks. I'll keep an eye on her and make sure she drinks plenty of water. We have a fine Vet ER about a mile away if necessary.

Dr. Altman :

Perfect

Dr. Altman :

And if she is vomiting the water please pull it away from her to minimize further issues

Dr. Altman :

Can I assist with any additional questions this evening? I don't know why one of those would be tasty to Foxy! What dogs eat...

No, you've answered my question. Thanks and good night.
