Customer Question

My dog ate 200 leg fish oil capsules, 100mg each.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: He unscrewed the top himself? This is acting out when he gets left at home
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Veterinarians generally expect a deposit of about $19 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

Hello and welcome,

This is just a quick note to let you know that I am locked on to your question and am working on it now.

My name is***** and I am a small animal vet with many years experience and rest assured I will do my best to answer your question to your satisfaction today. However before I can start I need a little more information to make things clearer for me so could you please answer the following :

1. How long ago did this happen { how many minutes or hours ago } ?

2. How much does your dog weigh { In pounds } ?

3. Please look at the container and tell if this was plain fish oil or were there vitamins of any sort added?

You can then expect a written reply sometime within the next five to ten minutes or so. We also have the option to talk things over by telephone or via an internet service such as Skype if this is more convenient for you. Please get back to me if this is more suitable for you. { There is a small extra charge for phone calls }

Hello again,

I regret I have to log off now { I am in a very different time zone to you } but I will opt out so another expert can answer your question should you come back online.

Good luck with your dog ...
