Hi there,

I'm Dr. Karing and I would be glad to help with your question about your dog.

Ridx liquid septic treatment is not toxic. It will likely have no effect on your dog but could cause mild GI upset. There is no need to induce vomiting.

Stanley should be fine. To be cautious you can give him Pepcid AC at 5mg per 10 pounds of body weight by mouth every 12 hours for the next 24 hours.

The only active ingredient in this over the counter antacid should be famotidine.
