Hi

Dr. Paul Brazzell here

I would be happy to help you

I am one of the veterinarians authorized on this site to answer questions by text and/or phone

If you would like to just text then please ignore the phone call request from the site

There is no risk of toxicity here

But as you have seen we might see diarrhea

You can give Imodium at 0.1 mg/kg three times daily for two days

That will solve the problem

Okay?

Paul
