Hello,

My name is***** and i will help you. let me check about the arnica. There are arnica tablets that we can take , so I think it will be OK.

Give me a few minutes.

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 1 year ago.

I found one case of a dog eating arnica.

The toxicologist said the only problem could be from the the substance the arnica was put into. That is the gel or cream base. These could cause a bit of loose stool. Nothing serious.

Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 1 year ago.

The amount of arnica in these products is too small to cause a problem.

So just watch his stool. It might be soft or loose tomorrow.

Scarjo dodged the bullet this time. But being a puppy he will get into EVERYTHING. Treat him like a toddler and child (puppy) proof your house and yard. A dog explores with his mouth.

I'll be here for another hour so you can email me if you have any questions.

You can ask them - even after the rating.

Good morning Debbie,

How is Scarjo this morning? Any diarrhea?

Just keep that rascal out of trouble by puppy proofing your home.
