My 12 pound puppy...

My 12 pound puppy just ate a half a teabag

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

Ruby

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

Sorry Yvette just called me back and he said there's nothing to worry about except for the bag itself but the bag is fine but I got a lot about caffeine online can be poisonous oh

She was hyperactive she seems calmer than before
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
No panting she doesn't seem anxious but we just got her I don't know her that well

Okay

I would just let her alone

The Benadryl may or may not sedate her a little bit but I would rather not give her anything
