Not sure if my dog ate some odor neutralizing gel beads.

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?

Rex 3 years

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Rex?

No. He is a large dog though. Don’t know if that affect anything. He’s about 140 lbs
