Customer Question

My 7 month old Samoyed puppy tore up a small bottle of generic anti diarreah pills during the night. When I awoke at 9am, she had thrown up twice. She's drinking water but not eating much food, There are 12 pills left uneaten and I probably took 8 over the past 6 months.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the dog eat anything unusual?
Customer: She ate some pills
JA: What is the dog's name?
Customer: Flora
JA: Is there anything else important you think the veterinarian should know about Flora?
Customer: no

Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 9 months ago.

1) What is the active ingredient?
2) How many milligrams per tablet?
3) How many could she have eaten (no info on original count, so I cannot begin to guess how many there were to start)
4) How much does Flora weigh?
