Customer Question

My 5 lb chihuahua swallowed 1 of my pro biotic capsules.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Tina and she will be 3 yrs this sept.
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Tina?
Customer: No.....the capsule is from plexus products and called pro bio5. This happened about20 minutes ago
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help you today. I'm sorry for this concern for Tina. I double checked the ingredients in this product and I'm happy to reassure you that I don't see any that cause alarm. It's possible I suppose that she might develop loose stools as a result of ingesting this capsule but I'll be rather surprised if she does.But, should the stools become loose in 12-24 hours, a bland diet of boiled chicken and rice should return the stools to a normal consistency rather quickly. She should be fine. I hope this helps to provide peace of mind. Deb
