Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question today. Just like an in person consult, I have a few questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible....How long ago did Riley get into it?Did she eat everything, including the packaging?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
15 minutes ago. It was at least a year old and all dried up like a hamburger size. It was scented

Great. Thanks for the additional information. I really appreciate it.Because the Calcium Chloride (Damprid) causes ulcer,s I wouldn't try to get Riley to vomit it up. If this were me, I would encourage her to drink a lot of water, and you can feed her a bland diet of boiled white rice and boiled hamburger for the next week or so.Even though the product was dried, it can still cause digestive problems, so offer her about 1 cup of milk to help neutralize the product in the stomach.Then, get her started on some Pepcid AC. (famotidine). A dog Riley's size can have 10mg every 12 hours for 5 days. You can buy pepcid ac over the counter in any human pharmacy.If you notice any vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, anorexia or any other unusual symptoms, then you should have her seen by a vet immediately, but hopefully the bland diet and Pepcid AC will do the trick.I hope this helps.
