I think she just...

I think she just ingested a pill that may have fallen on the floor. I take several & don't know what she got or if for sure she did. Heard a crunch & white tidbits. Stuck my finger down her throat to try & make her choke it up. But didn't work

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

IZA. She's 3
