Hi, this is Dr. Hill. Can you tell me the name of the fly strips?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Raid fly ribbon
Expert:  Kelly Hill replied 1 year ago.

got it. Give me a minute to look at ingredients.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Okay. She's a smaller dog, I'm not sure of her breed, but she's no bigger than a Pomeranian.
Expert:  Kelly Hill replied 1 year ago.

How on earth did she eat two of this strips and the box? She is a tiny thing. So, the good news is that there is no insecticide in that brand, so just the sticky glue which is not an issue. The big issue, is all of the material obstructing her stomach. Two options: make her vomit or leave her along tonight and then take her to local veterinarian in the morning for X-rays of her abdomen. How long ago did she eat them?

I'm not sure, determined I suppose. As for his long ago, I just got home from work. So within the last 9 hours. She's acting a little sleepier than normal and is having trouble getting comfortable.
Expert:  Kelly Hill replied 1 year ago.

You can make her vomit by giving her one teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide by mouth. This usually works within 15 minutes. May sound weird, but save anything she vomits, so that it can be looked at by your veterinarian.

Okay, is there anything else I should do?
Expert:  Kelly Hill replied 1 year ago.

Let me know what she brings up if anything. Did she eat any dinner when you got home from work?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No. I can give her some food if that'll
help! She did drink a lot of water though.
Expert:  Kelly Hill replied 1 year ago.

I would offer her a little food and then give her the peroxide.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Okay, thank you so much. I'll let you know what happens
Expert:  Kelly Hill replied 1 year ago.

Standing by.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
She ate her food, and had a teaspoon of the peroxide. She got more energetic after, but now she is sleeping.
Expert:  Kelly Hill replied 1 year ago.

She is a tough nut!! You can give one more teaspoon of peroxide to see if she will vomit. I usually don't give more than that to small dogs. Or you can let her sleep and see how she is acting in the morning. Please let me know how she does. I will check back in tomorrow morning. Take care.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Okay will do. Thank you!
Expert:  Kelly Hill replied 1 year ago.

Good morning. How is Momo?

Expert:  Kelly Hill replied 1 year ago.

Hello. Would you mind rating my answer? Hope Momo is well. Take care.
