I am sorry to hear this has happened.

Is she acting abnormal at all? Any vomiting or diarrhea?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
She seems fine. Nothing abnormal. No vomiting or diarrhea.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Should I just watch her closely?
Expert:  Dr. G. replied 1 year ago.

I see.

There are two options here:

1) watch for any abnormal signs: vomiting, restlessness, anxious behavior

2) induce vomiting

Expert:  Dr. G. replied 1 year ago.

it is unlikely there will be any major problems.

Keep her quiet and calm. Make sure there are not a lot of loud noises or a lot of activity in the area.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ok. so when or if should i induce vomiting and how?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ok. thank you.
Expert:  Dr. G. replied 1 year ago.

Inducing vomiting now would be best versus later.

give 3 teaspoons of 3% (regular) hydrogen peroxide to induce vomiting. I think it is unlikely she will have a major problem. She might not really need it.

Expert:  Dr. G. replied 1 year ago.

most likely she will be a little skittish later and should be completely normal by tomorrow.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ok thank you.
