Yesterday he chewed on a bath and body works antibacterial thing that was hanging on my bag. He apparently got it open and I am not sure how much he ingested.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Today he is throwing up...starting at about 5, and has had diarrhea all night
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?
Customer: His name is ***** ***** he is 1 year old...shih tzu 9 pounds

What exactly is the Body Works antibacterial thing? Do you have the label with the ingredients?

I need this information to see if it is toxic or just irritating.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
He didn't grab a hold of it for very long, I heard him chewing something, and immediately noticed he had the lid popped open. I snatched it away. Yes it's just like purell, but flavored
Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 10 months ago.

OK. Thanks. Give me a few minutes to research the ingredients.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Here's the label
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
He only could have possibly licked the top of the container, he could not have squeezed any more out....
Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 10 months ago.

Most hand sanitizers contain some form of alcohol and yours has isopropyl alcohol.

Did Cowboy show any symptoms of being drunk? Incoordination? Staggering? Sleeping extra deep?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No...he's been his normal playful self. He ingested it around 3 pm yesterday...and the symptoms didn't start until today around 5...Now he obviously acts like he doesn't feel well...but he has vomited a ton and had to go to the bathroom constantly...
Expert:  Dr Marta Lepes replied 10 months ago.

These products are irritating to the stomach and intestines which is why he had vomiting and diarrhea.

Has the vomiting stopped?

How long ago did he have his last diarrhea? (hours/minutes)
