Hello,

I am sorry you are worried about Winston. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

I am sorry you did not get help from an expert until now. I just came online and saw your question. How is he doing? Do you still need help with him?

Thanks for getting back to me, I called animal poison control last night and they assured me it wasn't toxic and advised I feed him a gentle diet for the next two days to remedy any digestive issues. Thanks for reaching out, but I think it's covered :)
Dog Veterinarian: Rebecca, Dog Veterinarian replied 2 years ago

Great; that is what I would have said, too! Glad he is doing alright. Thanks for letting me know.
