My 8lb Havanese just ate ~ 8 candy cane herscheys kisses -

Customer Question
My 8lb Havanese just...

My 8lb Havanese just ate ~ 8 candy cane herscheys kisses - described as mint candy with stripes & candy bits. doesn't actually list chocolate white or otherwise in the ingredients. 1st ingredient is sugar, followed by vegetable, palm, Shea, sunflower, palm kernel & safflower oils, non-fat milk, corn syrup solids, lactose, oil of peppermint, confectioners glaze, food coloring red etc etc. sounds awful. Any red flags there? should I induce vomiting. it's been about 20mins & she has had a drink.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?

Zoey - 4 years old

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

Other than she's a pig? no - she's in great health & is a therapy dog

Hi!

Dr. Paul Brazzell here

I happen to be looking at one of those right now- my kids love them

The total weight is just over five ounces for the whole thing

This means Zoey ate only a portion of that

There is no chocolate you are correct

I do not expect any problems other then MAYBE a little diarrhea

Offer food and water as per usual and update me in the AM

I hope that helps!

Okay?

Paul

tks for reply - I'm a bit confused here - I thought I paid $5 for the answer but I see that's not the case 7 very sneaky not to tell up front what the charges will be. Would never have given cc# ***** I thought there was an arbitrary fee for my question. Why would you not be up front & say how much it costs to get an answer for this type of question
Dog Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

Hi.

I do not have anything to do with the billing

I am a veterinary consultant and I am only paid if my answer is rated by the customer

So I am not being paid for my answer unless you rate me

But the Just Answer people get their 5.00 up front

Dog Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

I dont know how much they will charge you

I get 10.00 if you rate me or I get zero dollars if you dont rate me
