Customer Question
My chi swallowed a...

My chi swallowed a severe strength alkaline seltzer plus capsule. She threw up but not until the capsule had opened inside her stomach. Is there anything I can do for her?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What sort of animal are we talking about?

Chihuahua

Veterinarian's Assistant: The Expert will know if the Chihuahua will be able to digest that. What is the Chihuahua's name and age?

She’s 1 and her name is*****: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Chia?

She eats everything in sight. Grass, limbs, rocks. You name it she eats it. Her ears are turning red inside and she has started scratching.

She is fine. Back to herself. I am very disappointed that an answer wasn't forthcoming when I needed it and I tend on calling customer service to have my membership cancelled.
