Customer Question
I have an Akita...

I have an Akita who just ate ridx from a box. I have vomit on the floor. I walked into my room with both dogs eager to go outside. Then saw vomit then the box chewed into and maybe 1/3 of it gone.

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

Zoey and zane 7 and 5yrs

OK, the good news is that Rid X is not toxic per se as it contains mostly enzymes and bacteria but it can cause GI upset-which we are seeing already. I would start both dogs on Pepcid (antacid) and a bland diet. Its possible they could have some more vomiting and potentially diarrhea but the bland diet will help with both. The bland diet I would use boiled chicken, white rice +/- low fat cottage cheese. Send me their weighs and I will give you a dose for Pepcid
