Customer Question

my dog ate 40 to 50 Cosequin DS pills - the bottle is mangle. Also, she tore apart a 6 oz package of Friskies cat treats (almost full) and ate that. She vomited (included bile) and had diahrrea. (came home to this so don't know what time it actually happened) She would not eat anything tonight but is drinking water. She is a 72 lb. Australian Shepherd.
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: Bella
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Bella?
Customer: She probably ate the packaging on the Frisklies because I can't find that.

I'm not sure - Igot home and she had already eaten the pills and the cat treats. She vomited pills and liquid in the living room and had diarrhea The bottle is intact - not sure where the cap is. I think she ate the packing on the Friskies cat treats.
