Hello, my name is***** thank you for your question. I am a fully qualified vet from the UK and have spent the last thirty years or so treating dogs, cats, and smaller pets. I will be very glad to help you today, please allow me ten minutes or so to review your question and type things up, I will then get straight back to you.

Hello again,

I have worked out an answer for you below.

1. The good news is that Rid-x is enzyme based and is considered non-toxic as such, that said if Carmen has ingested a fair quantity she may suffer a mild transient bout of vomiting and/or diarrhoea. But the chances are that this will not turn into a serious sort of incident.

2. However where a dog swallows any sort of drug or substance not intended for it then one of the best things you can do in this sort of situation is to make your dog sick immediately and try to recover the Rid-X that way. If you can do this within the first hour after ingestion then this may be possible. For the sake of speed, I will give you a link on how to do this best: LINK

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 Carmen's condition changes in any way or indeed if you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,

Dr Scott
