Dr. Alice,
My dog got into antibiotics for my son. I was so scared for my dog. I called my veterinarian and was so relieved that he was ok. I just wanted to let you know. Sincerely, Whoops


Dear Whoops,
Thank you for letting me know! If your veterinarian’s office is closed, there are different 800 numbers. One of them is Animal Poison Control at 888-426-4435. I am so glad your pupster is ok!!
