Hello. Thanks for the question. Biotone is not truly toxic, but it can cause some significant GI signs- vomiting, nausea, diarrhea, GI cramping. That is probably what you're seeing now. To help with the signs, there are a couple over the counter meds that can help. First, Famotidine (Pepcid) can help with nausea and upper GI signs. The dose in dogs is 0.25 mg per lb body weight every 12-24 hours. The other is Meclizine (Antivert) that can help with vomiting and cramping. The dose is 25 mg every 24 hours. I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
