Hello again,

I have worked out an answer for you below.

1. I thought that might be the case, for them to have adverse side effects they would actually have to swallow quite a bit of the tape, just biting into it is not likely to cause problems. In any case if side effects were going to occur they would have done so quite some time ago, probably within the first two hours after ingestion.

2. From what you have told me so far the chances are your dogs are going to be just fine, so really can forget the issue. But in any case I should be available online for you the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me if any of your dog's condition changes in any way or if you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,

Dr Scott
