My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that Henry was naughty today. Do you know about what time frame he ate the coconut?
Coconut is not toxic to dogs, but the excessive sugar can potentially be toxic. If he ate it a while ago (like more than 2 hours ago), I would offer him just plain protein for dinner such as boiled chicken or scrambled eggs. In the morning you can offer his normal food. Also, ensure that he as access to plenty of water, as excess sugar does make them thirsty. He will also have to urinate more than normal, so make sure he has access to his toileting area.
If he ate it within the last 30 minutes, you can induce vomiting by giving hydrogen peroxide, about 2-3 TBSPs.
I hope this answer helps you. Feel free to contact me if you have any further questions.
