Hello, I am afraid that the expert you have requested is not currently available. Still I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

If he has had this within the past 8 hours, then you can give between 35-140 grams of activated charcoal to bind what is left in the stomach. This can be offered with food or mixed with water to syringe into him. It can be repeated every 8 hours for at least 24 hours to try and bind as much toxin as possible.

Please take care,

Dr. B.
