Can I get my answer please

Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

1) Was this straight ammonia or ammonia mixed into water?
2) Are there any symptoms present such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea?
3) Is the indoor urination a regular problem for Ruger?
4) Does his breath smell like ammonia?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Ammonia was mixed with water, no symptoms,
Yes recently, he will usually bark for us to let him out but recently he keeps going in the house,
We have two German sheoards so we aren't sure if our girl German Shepard is going to the bathroom inside as wellAnd no his mouth doesn't smell like ammonia

If the accidents persist, I would highly recommend a urinalysis for whomever is having accidents (or both, if you're unsure). This symptom is usually indicative of a urinary tract infection.

If his mouth does not smell like ammonia and no symptoms are present, it's quite unlikely that the ammonia water was consumed. If you do wind up seeing GI symptoms throughout the day today, feel free to use this thread again and contact me back and we can pick up our discussion where we left off with no additional charge.
