Customer Question

My dog tore up but does not appear to have eaten much (if any) of a Magic Eraser Pad. My dog is a 8 month old Westie and this happened about 15 minutes ago.

Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help you today. I'm sorry for this concern for Murphy but happy to reassure you that I wouldn't expect any adverse consequences from his exposure to this product.If he had ingested it, then I might worry about the risk of an obstruction if he ate enough of it but it doesn't sound as if he did.This product contains a relatively safe chemical that might cause some gastrointestinal irritation....but not much more than this. I might expect to see drooling or possibly vomiting within 15-30 minutes or possibly diarrhea in 12-24 hours but I wouldn't be surprised if you didn't see any signs at all. You might want to rinse out his mouth with cool water but he should be just fine. I hope this helps to provide peace of mind about him. Deb

Hello again,I'm just following up on Murphy. I'm assume he's doing just fine but wanted to double check. Deb
