Customer Question
We have a puppy-4...

We have a puppy-4 months about 18 pounds and I just found a chewed on package of daytime cold medicine with 1/2 of a pill gone. So she must have chewed on and consumed part of 1/4 of a serving. Should I rush her to the vet or give her lots of water-induce vomiting?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the dog eat anything unusual?

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name and age?

Camille, 4 months -did you read what I just wrote? that info is in there

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