Customer Question
I was spraying ortho...

I was spraying ortho home defense insect killer outside and my 9 month old puppy just licked some. I immediately took her in to get water. Is there anything I should do? Is she going to be ok?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if the puppy will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name?
