No worries. I answered you in your original post: No, rinsing out the puppies mouth with water should suffice to prevent spread of disease. I tried to mark this post as a duplicate because it was a follow up and you shouldn't be charged again. Please contact customer service so that's the case.

Ok thankyou very much we have washed her mouth out with water and will ring the vet first thing in the morning. Thankyou for not charging me for this and again for your help.

I can't know what the site will do concerning charges so be sure to contact customer service and tell them that this is a follow-up (a "duplicate" post).
