Hello,

I am sorry to hear you are worried about Dash. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

Do you know what was in the home made play dough? How long ago did he eat it?

If you look at his gums, are they pink in color, or pale?

Can he eat, and drink?

I will be able to answer your question when I know what was in the dough, and how long ago he ate it. I hope I hear from you soon. Rebecca

Salt, less then 2oz
Water 1cup
3 cups of flour
And a little food coloring

How long ago did he get it? Salt can make a dog vomit.

If you look at his gums, are they pink in color?

Can he eat and drink, or is he vomiting too much? If he is not vomiting everything he takes in, you can try giving him 1/4th of a famotidine (Pepcid) for vomiting. If he just keeps vomiting, and can't hold even liquids down, he could become dehydrated.

I am sorry that an expert was not able to help you with a phone call. Not all experts, myself included, can make phone calls for the website.
