Hello again

I have very quickly worked out an answer for you below.

1. This is potentially toxic to Quinoa. One of the best things you can do in this sort of situation is to make your pup sick immediately and try to recover the cigarette that way. If you can do this within the first hour after ingestion then things should be OK. For the sake of speed, I will give you a link on how to do this best: LINK

{ Also be aware that an ER vet will be able to quickly induce vomiting with prescription drugs }

2 However, if you fail to quickly induce vomiting, then you should take Quinoa to an ER vet ASAP.

Regards,

Dr Scott
