Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

How many hours ago did he eat this?

How much sulfur and zinc were in this per tablespoon?

Are his gums pink or pale/white?

Are you sure he has lost his sight?

Any changes in breathing?

Hi, I took him to an emergency vet this morning. I thought the site was "Live Chat"...which is why I got on last night. I live 70 miles from anything & was trying to see if his condition was life threatening. So sorry your site didn't work out for me since it was an emergency type situation and I needed answers fast. Thanks for your reply, I understand I will be charged somewhere around $20.00 . Regards, Capri
