I am Dr. Su S.

Expert:  Dr. Su S. replied 5 months ago.

Hello again,
I was waiting for response from you.
I understand your anxiety.
It is not necessary to take her to doctor right now.
Usually nothing will happen.
If the milk gets spoiled she can develop nausea, vomiting, diarrhea.
But as the milk did not smell anything abnormal, most likely she will remain OK.
If she develops any symp***** *****ke diarrhea, vomiting, please get her an examination by doctor.
You can observe her now.
Please do not worry.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.
