Ask Your Own Dog Question

did your dog eat the container also? Or just the cream?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
No, all pieces of the container are accounted for. She only ate the cream.

and you say it was about 3 ounces total?

Ask Your Own Dog Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Probably less because I had used it and there is still a little left.

ok, give me a few minutes....when was this ingested?

Ask Your Own Dog Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Not sure. We were out for the evening and come home and found it. We were gone from 630-10

ok, has there been any vomiting?

Ask Your Own Dog Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
No vomiting
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
She's acting fine. If I didn't find the tube, I wouldn't know.

ok, and you are sure there is no zinc of any kind in the hand cream? And can you tell me all the ingredients...

Ask Your Own Dog Question

I suspect that your dog will be fine since there is no zinc......but you could see GI distress....in the form of vomiting and diarrhea....if your dog starts to have vomiting, diarrhea, lack of appetite or lethargy you should see your vet immediately.

Ask Your Own Dog Question

Can I answer any other questions or concerns for you?
