I'm so sorry for your loss.

Tea? Since when is caffeine good for dogs? As for the "non toxic" aspect of it, dogs are sensitive to all sorts of things that aren't harmful to humans, including chocolate, ibuprofen, acetaminophen, grapes and onions. Glue sticks may be absolutely harmless to human children and deadly to dogs.

I am so sorry for your loss. Did you have a necropsy performed to be sure this is what caused the death? I definitely would.

Well it's not that simple, a, autopsy will not necessary show reliable proof, only a tox screen will proof it. But UHU is well they are trying to get me to send the animal to them, they are even willing to come out hear to collect the puppy personally, isn't that a scandal????,

You know, I once poured a can of soup into a pot and discovered a shard of glass in it. The [large, well-known company] kindly sent me a stamped envelope to send it to them in. Um, no.

You could ask them to pay your vet to do the necropsy. I don't know if manufacturer's even test if things are nontoxic to dogs or not. (Unless the product is for dogs.) "Nontoxic" probably only means nontoxic to humans.

A glue stick really should not be toxic to a dog, especially that quickly. I would really recommend a necropsy from a neutral party (i.e., not them and not your own veterinarian).

How do they want you to send it? Personally, I would still pay to have the necropsy done, by a vet, not them. Then have the findings sent to them. Also the toxicology should be able to be done from blood in the heart, after death, if done soon enough.

Hi there
Well good news they are paying for it, and it's don by a neutral french state institution.
That means that the results are going to be non partial and that if it is the way it seams i
may be able to change the printing on the UHU STIC form non Toxic to Toxic for animals.
I hope so for my puppy that he did not go in ....

Not everything that is called tea has actual tea leaves in it - it just refers to something that must be steeped in water in order to drink it. (i.e. Cammomile, echinacea, rose-hip, peppermint can all be made into "teas" and are caffeine free).

Aww poor baby.
Sorry she died. Maybe I missed it but did you see her ingest it and how much time passed till you got her to the vet? Did you call the glue company before you called the vet? Sorry for all the questions, just trying to figure this out.
The glue may not be toxic but the size of the stick alone compared to puppy's size probably caused her death.
