My golden retriever chewed open a tube of antibiotic

Customer Question

My golden retriever chewed open a tube of antibiotic ointment and ate maybe 1/4 of a 1-ounce tube.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if your dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Her name is ***** ***** 15 months old and weighs 52 pounds.
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Summer?
Customer: No, she's in good health.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I do have a couple of questions to see if I can better assess your situation, though.

Can you tell me exactly what ointment this was?

How long ago did this happen?

Any signs of illness yet?
