Hi

Dr. Paul Brazzell here

Awesome owner!

The contents are not toxic per se but can cause GI upset and of course drooking etc etc

You have done a great job so far

Therefore you do not need to do anything else

I do not expect any other problems!!

I hope that helps!

Okay?

Paul

Thank you! What are some symptoms I should look out for? Or anything that should urge me to take him to a Vet?

Vomiting and drooling would be the big ones

Followed by abdominal pain
