Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 35+ years. I am sorry Paddy has you worrried.

This Fetilizer can cause Gastointestinal distress that can last 24-48 hiurs to include diarrhea and vomiting. The Biggest issue that causes problems, is the Fertilizer can grow mold and that is what is most toxic. I would have him see the Vet as he may need nausea medication and fluids if it starts to affect him.

Please let me know if you have questions on this information.
