Hello, my name is***** and I have over 20 years of experience as a veterinarian. I am sorry to hear that Grey got into something that he should not have, your husband's stool softeners.

I do have some questions for you.

  1. I understand that these pills were 100mgs but what was the name of the drug/active ingredient?
  2. Were any pills missing or just chewed on?
  3. Were these tablets or liquid gel capsules?
  4. How much does Grey weigh?
  5. How long ago was this?
  6. How is he behaving now?
  7. Has he eaten or drank anything since?

Thanks for your patience with my questions, the answers will be very helpful in guiding you and telling me how worried you should be.
