How long ago did he eat the gel? I know you said he is not feeling well and he has not thrown up. What symptoms is he having now?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
About an hour ago, and no he is not throwing up, he just seems that he is not feeling well. Is under the bed right now.

Thank you

Okay the gel should not cause more than gastrointestinal upset.

You could give him an over the counter stomach acid reducer.

How much does he weigh?

Expert:  Dr. Gabby replied 6 months ago.

I can not call right now but if you want I can opt out and let other experts call you. I can not see who else is online right now so Im not sure how long it would take for someone to call you.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
