Customer Question

My dog is female 6 years old Corgy mix she drank mop water with pinsol she vomited and is not lathargic. But her mouth is fine. No burn or irretation. What should I do for a home remedy. Vet is very far away as we live in the country.

Can you tell me a bit more so I can better assist you? When did your Corgi drink the mop water? How much water did she drink? How much pinsol was in the water?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Last night during dinner. I don't know how much she drank. About 8th cup of pinsol
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
But the mop bucket is full so it has had to have been watered down quite a bit
Expert:  Katie Volat replied 8 months ago.

Has she had a normal appetite today? Any diarrhea?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Her stools have been solid but she did have a lot of throw up this morning. She has not eaten at all today but is drinking water like crazy

These are concerning symptoms. Pinsol can be very irritating to the lining of the esophagus, stomach, and intestines. It can cause ulcerations and possible perforations if enough was ingested. It can also cause kidney damage. Unfortunately, this is a very serious problem, no home remedy will be sufficient. I advise you to take her to your nearest vet as soon as possible to get treatment.
