Hello, my name is***** thank you for your question. I am a fully qualified vet from the UK and have spent the last thirty years or so treating dogs, cats, and smaller pets. I will be very glad to help you today, please allow me ten minutes or so to review your question and type things up, I will then get straight back to you.

Hello again,

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

1. Good news! This should not be toxic to your dog in any way, the chances are she will be unaffected by this. I have just checked out the ingredients of this product at the manufacturer's website, there is nothing there which will harm your dog, no toxic artificial sweeteners such as Xylitol which would be your main worry.

2. Your dog should be just fine so there are no special precautions you need to take. But in any case, I should be available online for you for the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me in the very unlikely event that if her condition changes in any way or indeed if you would like to talk things over with me further.
