Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I am not set up to do phone calls but would be happy to answer any questions you do have online. If you get a request for a phone call, it is from the website and not myself. While oleander can cause vomiting, drooling, nausea and lack of appetite; I am more concern about the effects it can have on the heart. It can cause some life threatening heart arrhythmia and seizures. Just because of that reason, my best advice is to get her to your vet. Even if everything looks good with her heart, they can give her an antinausea injection, medication to settle the stomach and fluids to get her past this faster. Going on two day, she can get very dehydrated and make things worse. Besides the withholding of food and trying something bland like boneless skinless chicken breast and rice; the only thing you can safely give a dog at home for nausea is Pepcid or Prilosec. They are usually very safe at 2.5 mg per 10 lbs of body weight daily, but they will not do anything if her heart is affected by this toxicity. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
