Customer Question
My dog did just...

My dog did just eat a whole box of fortiflora for cats. There are not even the packets left. It is going on 2 a.m. and we were out late. Thoughts?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with your dog?

Please see the note above.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Where does your dog seem to hurt?

Have you read my question?

Veterinarian's Assistant: Can you see anything that looks wrong or different?

No.

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. Nothing visually obvious. Is your dog eating normally?

We just got home. It isn't his food time. I am concerned that he ate a whole box of fortiflora, including the packets.
