Customer Question
She’s 20 lb...

She’s 20 lb morkie and semi chewed a zicam chew still in the wrapper, so she never got it completely open. I figure she got about 1/4 of it ingested....

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name?

Poppy

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Poppy?

She’s healthy, no issues. She’s actually got a vet appt for her yearly tomorrow at 2pm.

Even if Poppy had ingested the entire chew, there wouldn't have been enough of the active ingredient (zinc) to be toxic to her. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns.
