Customer Question
My 5 pound puppy...

My 5 pound puppy just consumed 3 pills of nutri-vet. How will this affect her

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What seems to be the problem with the puppy?

She is acting fine but consumed 3 pills of nutri-vet which helps to stop her from eating poop. The recommended amount is 1 pill per 20 pounds

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the puppy's name?

Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!

Can you please confirm that this is the nutrivet nasty habit chewables?

Luckily there is nothing toxic in this chewable and the worst case scenario is it will cause gi upset for 12-24 hours and she should be just fine but taking a few precautions tonight:

- Pepcid (famotidine) 0.25 mg per pound every 12 hours for 3 days (10 mg 1/8 tablet)
- Leash walks to help the chewables to pass more readily of >15 minutes (even if around the backyard)
- Bland diet of white rice and lean boiled meat such as chicken in small more frequent meals but waiting at least 12 hours after vomiting has subsided if he shows this symptom

I hope this information makes sense but please let me know who else I can assist you both today
