Hello again,

I have worked out an answer for you below.

1. Good news, the active ingredient in Round-up is glyphosate which has a wide margin of safety in the dog. Where you are dealing with a non-concentrated form as in Brodie's case then all I would expect is a mild transient bout of vomiting and /or diarrhoea over a 24 - 48 hour period and then recovery.

2. Given the above there are no special actions you need take, the chances are that Brodie will be just fine, of course, if symptoms continue or if you note any deterioration of any sort then you should have him checked over by a local vet, but this would be unlikely. But in any case, I should be available online for you for the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me if your dog's condition changes in any way or indeed if you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,

Dr Scott

Thank you. We did bloodwork and x-rays to rule out plastic ingestion. I didn't get your answer quickly because of this site trying to get money. Very disappointed in that. But thank you for easing my mind
Dog Veterinarian: Dr Scott Nimmo, Dog Veterinarian replied 4 months ago

Hopefully, Brodie will not suffer any side effects ...

Good luck,

Dr Scott
