Nutrical

Postby agilebcs » Thu Jan 29, 2009 5:44 pm

Soooo, one of my dogs just ate almost a whole tube of Nutrical. Tube and all. Hopefully the plastic or whatever the tube is made out of will pass right through her (she left the top at least and I got the last 1/3 of the empty tube away from her. Anyone know what a large dose of Nutrical is likely to do? I know that it made a lovely mess on my carpet!!!

Thanks!

Isn't nutrical really sugary ?
When Rosie ate a mass quantity of Glucosamine tabs, the poison center was helpful.Their databases are enormous.

According to the instructions, she ate more than a couple of doses but there were no reactions listed if a dog ate too much. I was mostly wondering if it'd cause diarhhea, stomach upset, etc. She made it through the night fine though.

Oh, noes! That sounds like something Lilly would do. Glad to hear she's OK so far. Hopefully the tubing stuff will pass. I'm sure it will, but I'll cross my fingers in case.

Here are the ingredients- for both puppy and adult. Nothing in this concerns me too much, your dog may get the runs, but with the lube like consistency, it should help push the tube/parts out.


Ingredients-Puppy Formula: Corn syrup, soybean oil, malt syrup, cod liver oil, cane molasses, methylcellulose, water, gelatin by-products, dl-alpha-tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E), sodium benzoate (preservative), manganese sulfate, ferric ammonium citrate, thiamine HCI, niacin, calcium pantothenate (source of calcium and pantothenic acid), magnesium sulfate, pyridoxine HCI, potassium iodine (source of iodine and potassium), riboflavin 5' - phosphate soidium (source of vitamin B2 and phosphorus), vitamin A palmitate & D supplement, folic acid and cyanocobalamin (vitamin B12).

Ingredients-Adult Formula: Corn syrup, soybean oil, malt syrup, cod liver oil, cane molasses, methylcellulose, water, gelatin by-products, dl-alpha-tocopheryl acetate (vitamin E), sodium benzoate (preservative), manganese sulfate, ferric ammonium citrate, thiamine HCI, niacin, calcium pantothenate (source of calcium and pantothenic acid), magnesium sulfate, pyridoxine HCI, potassium iodine (source of iodine and potassium), riboflavin 5' - phosphate soidium (source of vitamin B2 and phosphorus), vitamin A palmitate & D supplement, folic acid and cyanocobalamin (vitamin B12).

I think she ate the puppy version. She actually had to open a box and dig through some towels to get to the Nutrical! Hopefully she makes it through the day in her crate. :)

I would be way more worried about the tube than the Nutrical. If it has zinc in it she could get really serious zinc poisoning. I would have made her barf it up....you might still try that. I sure hope she's okay!

You know, I didn't even think to make her throw it up. Duh. I'm a bit overwhelmed these days with a litter of 7 week old puppies in the middle of a really cold and snowy (and icy) winter. I'm amazed I even noticed that she'd eaten it, honestly.

She seems fine, normal stools. I just weaned her puppies and have cut back on her food and she's ravenous and also hormonal. I'm keeping a close eye on her.
