I had my yard sprayed...
I had my yard sprayed for bugs this morning. It's suppose to be safe for pets when dry. He went out on it after about 7 hours. I found him chewing on something. Shortly after he started drooling a lot. How do I know if he is ok?

Friend, depending on the type of spray that was used will depend on the potential for toxicity. Drooling certainly could be a sign of ingestion some of the chemicals. Or, it could be a sign of something completely different like: Nausea, oral discomfort, etc. This is what you can do:

1- Give him some milk; if he did ingest some of the chemical the milk will help dilute it.

2- Start him on Pepcid AC (famotidine) 10mg 1/2 tablet every 12 hours. You can buy pepcid ac over the counter in any pharmacy.

3- Do Not give things like pepto bismol.

4- Symptoms that would require a vet visit are: Anorexia, lethargy, tremors, difficulty walking, vomiting excessively, etc.

5- If he is still drooling in the morning after doing the above I would have him checked by family veterinarian.

Please do not forget to rate my answer - I hope you found it to be excellent. If there’s more I can do, please use the reply tab and let me know. It’s my goal to provide you with excellent service." Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon!
