Customer Question

My dog ate a bunch of tums antacid and has been vomiting for 24 hours straight (about 14 times). We fed her this morning 12 hours after consumption and at 4pm vomited twice. We think she had about 10-12 tablets. What are we to do. She acts fine just the vomiting.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if your dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Josie
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Josie?
Customer: She is arthritic and takes rimidol
