Customer Question
My 2 year old...

My 2 year old female lab ingested about(###) ###-####g Omega 3 capsules about 8 hours ago. She does not appear in any real discomfort and ate her normal dinner about 2 hours ago, but now has had one really loose stool. What do I do now as she ate these pills so long ago. I have set up her bed, water, and blanket for her in the laundry room. Any advise would be so appreciated.

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?

The dog is named Hershey.

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

No, she is in good physical shape and has had no health issues.

Sorry missed the eight hours part!

The good news is that these are non-toxic

The worst that you might see is vomiting and smelly diarrhea (like fish)

Occasionally I will get a dog that is lethargic also

You have done a good job so far

You can feed in the AM

Lots of fresh water

Update me in AM

Okay?

Paul
