My name is***** I know that your dog is hopefully recovered after eating the energy gel packets but I wanted to share some information with you about Animal Poison Control. Keep this information close by, as you may need their help in the future:

ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center: They are your best resource for any animal poison-related emergency, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. If you think that your pet may have ingested a potentially poisonous substance, call (888)(###) ###-####/strong>. A $65 consultation fee may be applied to your credit card. They will ask you the name of the product as well as any listed ingredient and will tell you if the product is toxic and if you should rush your pet to the nearest veterinarian.

Best regards, ***** ***** this answer helps you. If it does, please consider rating it.
