Customer Question
My dog has possibly...

My dog has possibly eaten some of a thera pearl ice pack - I don't think very much but I can't be sure. Is is toxic?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Did you see what your dog ate?

The thera pearl pack is split open and she probably ingested some but she obviously didn't like the tste or she would have eaten it all - she may have spat some out.
