Customer Question
Good evening, my dog...

Good evening, my dog seemed to have eaten dried/old weed that was tossed into the garbage by my son. he said the weed had been used for baking and was covered in butter. the dog appears to be having seizures, she hides he hear from light or any activity

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

Well i don't think she can digest that... she's not supposed to. her name is ***** ***** she is one year old ad 2 months

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

She is a shetland, weighing at 20 pounds. usually has lots of energy, she isn't doing well. i want to know if i should bring her to the vet now this such bullshit, and false advertising. but ok i guess i have no choice

Hi, I am Dr. Denney. I am currently reviewing your post now. Please give me a few minutes to type my response. Thank you for trusting us with your question. This service is used for general information only and is no substitute for a veterinarian-patient relationship by examination.

I do apologize for the delay in someone getting to your question. I am just coming online and saw your question had not been answered.

How is your dog doing today? Were you able to get her to a veterinarian? That would have been what I would have advised you to do had I come online sooner. Seizures are a medical emergency and unfortunately, this site is used for general non-emergent services.
