Hi. My name is***** Thank you for your question about Leo. Was this just a single Kleenex that had some nail polish remover in it with the nail polish taken off some nails in it too? How long ago did this happen?
Alright. The ingestion of this single Kleenex with the nail polish remover in it and the nail polish itself hopefully shouldn't be that worrisome of a situation. I would be much, much more worried if the actual bottle had been spilled and he was licking up the liquid itself. The amount in the Kleenex shouldn't be enough to cause a toxicity situation. The acetone can be corrosive to the tissues, so the milk is a good idea. I wouldn't do any more as it can cause some to have some intestinal issues. Now, the best thing would be to let him have some food to help bulk up his ingesta to help things pass through. Vomiting isn't good with this acetone as it can irritate on the way up and the worst would be if it was aspirated.
I hope all goes as well as it should. Hopefully Leo can stay out of any more possible trouble.
