Dog ate Sentinel

Species: Dog
Breed: golden retriever
Age: 2-5 years
Shug got into the Sentinel package...pills are missing...what is the danger?




Online vet, Dr. Marie

Dr. Marie replied:

Sentinel is very safe for dogs. If he ate a few from the package there is no harm done.

However, you'll need to get more Sentinel from the vet to make sure that Shug is treated throughout heartworm season.
