Customer Question
My dog I think...

My dog I think I ate some of my diabetic medicine metformin and some Effexor what should I do

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?

Her name is ***** ***** weighs about 40 pounds and she's a six-month-old half pitbull half everything else

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

The Metformin will lead to lactic acidosis

Can we induce vomiting- appropriate if was less than two hours ago.
