Customer Question
Put the polar pooch...

Put the polar pooch pad down for our 9 month old puppy he chewed the corner. There is none on the floor and he is acting ok. I took it away from him just wanted to know what's in the gel in the pad.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. What is the dog's name?

Eli

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Eli?

No he was acting ok just don't want him to be sick if he did swallow any of it.

How much does Eli weigh?

Was any of the gel mat inside consumed or just the outer layer?

How much was consumed, can you tell?

Are you seeing any symptoms currently such as vomiting or diarrhea?

When did this occur?

Eli is around 25 to 30 lbs. All I saw was a small corner chewed off the mat. There was no gel anywhere. He is not acting sick. His stomach was making noise this morning but other than that he is doing ok.
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
It happen last night he was upstairs from 6 to 930. So sometime during those hours.
Dog Veterinarian: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 2 months ago

Thank you for the additional information. Is Eli still eating and drinking normally in spite of the stomach noises?
