Customer Question
My small Yorker poo...

My small Yorker poo ate one of those small packets that is put in food containers for preserving the item. Says Do Not Eat and oxygen absorber. Will this make my dog sick? Do I need to go to a vet? It was in a package of chicken doggie treats.

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?

Her name is ***** ***** she is about 8 years old.

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

No. She gets all her shot ect. And was last seen by a vet for check up several months ago. No health issues found.
