No, just looked

Can you get some?

Before doing that please feed Tess

The food will stick to pills when we make her vomit

How long to get peroxide?

Tess has vomited although I see no evidence of the pills. To be frank, it was an older prescription that we kept with the dog meds and I don't recall how many there were or what size they were.

Okay well they were likely broken up and mixed in with the stomach contents by now

So that is great news

We are out of danger here

You can give water in an hour and update me in two hours

Okay?
