Customer Question

I'm pretty sure my dog drank a large glass of coke on accident. He has an upset stomach but I can't tell if anything else is wrong. What should I look for?
Please and thank you

Thankfully, there's nothing toxic to dogs in Coke. He's experiencing GI distress as would be expected after ingesting such an unusual "food" but he wasn't intoxicated nor should any signs more than you're currently seeing arise. Administering an over the counter antacid such as famotidine (Pepcid) dosed at 0.25 mg/lb just once should afford him some comfort. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
