Hello, my name is***** and I have over 20 years of experience as a veterinarian. I am sorry to hear that Prince ingested 2-3 algaecide fizz tablets. There are several types of these. Can you give me the active ingredient list or at least the exact name of these tablets including the brand name?In the meantime DO NOT induce vomiting. You can give him 1/2 cup of milk to drink in case there are the irritant type tablets.
