If Scout has not shown any signs I wouldn't expect to see any from this ingestion but as with any ingestion please monitor for vomiting, diarrhea vs constipation, lethargy, reduced appetite but I suspect you won't see any ill effects from this ingestion if he hasn't at this time.

If seen then please take a few precautions:

- Pepcid (famotidine) 0.25 mg per pound every 12 hours for 3 days

- Leash walks to help the dehydrated food pass more readily of >15 minutes

- Tomorrow a bland diet of white rice and lean boiled meat such as chicken in small more frequent meals but waiting at least 12 hours after vomiting has subsided if there is this symptom

Please let me know if you have any additional questions I can assist with or clarify.
