Worried about my dog

I was digging through some storage boxes today and my dog got ahold of one of those little packets of silica. Before I realized she had it, she had torn it open and I can only assume she ate some. She is a teeny dog, only about 10 pounds. Everything I've read says that it should be fine as long as she didn't eat a lot. But does anybody actually have any experience with this? She's acting fine, but I'm worried (and I'd rather not spend a fortune in vet bills if there's no reason for an after hours visit).

  • If she continues to act normal then there is no need to worry. But I would suggest that you make sure she donesn't eat any Call the vet and ask if it is on the poison list for dogs to make sure she doesn't need a antidont for it. I am not sure but the vet will have the number to the poison control to ask to make sure she is going to to be ok...Good luck ...I hope she will be fine...

  • make sure you dog drinks plenty of water. maybe don't give it food for 8 hrs to get her to drink more and flush out or maybe 12 hrs would be better.
