Customer Question
My Pomeranian puppy accidentally...

My Pomeranian puppy accidentally ate a children's fluoride tablet

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

Balto

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

He was just neutered yesterday so he's not himself. He's 6months old and 4.9lbs

I am sorry to hear you are worried about Balto. Fluoride can be toxic if he he got a high dose; how many mg of fluoride in the tablet that he ate?
