He ate a whole package of these “wine-flavored” gummies! They contain glucose syrup, sugar, cornflower, water, modified potato starch, beef gelatine, lactic acid, ascetic acid, flavorings, colors, beeswax

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. The Expert will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?

Beauregard, he’s a Cavalier/Poodle mix and he’s 11.5 yrs old

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Beauregard?

Night before last he got into a fruitcake & I had to make him throw up, so I’m not anxious to do it again.

Hi,I'm Dr Scott. Welcome to JustAnswer, I am working on your question now, you can expect a written reply sometime within the next ten minutes or so.

Ask Your Own Dog Question

Hello again,

I have worked out an answer for you below.

1. Unlike the raisins and currants in the fruit cake there is nothing in the gummies toxic to Beauregard, so no worries on that score, he may perhaps have a mild transient stomach upset purely because of the sudden ingestion of unaccustomed rich human food but that's about it.

2. Given the above there are no special measure you need take other than just keeping an eye on him. But in any case I should be available online for you for the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me if Beauregard,'s condition changes in any way or you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,

Dr Scott
