Customer Question
My dog got into...

My dog got into a bottle of fungi nail. Its liquid and not sure how much he swallowed. He did while we were gone.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. The Expert will know if your dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?

Hi name is ***** ***** he is 4 months old. He doesn't have loss of appetite but he does have diarrhea

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about BJ?

He acts fine otherwise. Still plays a lot just concerned about the diarrhea

Fungi-Nail contains the non-toxic undecylenic acid 3%. As with ingesting anything unusual transient gastrointestinal distress in the form of inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea can arise but BJ wasn't intoxicated and should remain safe. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns.
