Dog Ate Heating Pad
cnafish posted:
My sister's dog ate a "Beyond BodiHeat" heat pad. Called poison control- no help w/ animals. ASPCA wants $65 for a consult, and just said to call poison control in case of ingestion. The dog is acting normal- no visible symptoms. If anyone has any advice on what I should do please let me know. Not sure if I should give her anything: milk/ water or induce vommiting or what. Below is the list of ingredients. The dog is a 50lb chatahola leopard dog about 2 years old. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Thank you INGREDIENTS: Iron Powder, Water, Activated Carbon, Vermiculite, Salt, Super Absorbent Polymer, Purge, Natural Mineral Powder

There are quite a few poison control hotlines specifically for animals that do provide assistance for free (you may have to wait a few minutes for them to call you back though). Google animal poison control free and you should find a few, especially some affiliated with animal hospitals at universities.

toll free animal poison control center is 1-888-426-4435 in case you haven't tried that particular number.
