HI this is DRB. Your doggies need to be seen at ER. This is usually a mild-severe poisoning and can include the following signs:

Drooling,Inappetance,Vomiting,Diarrhea,Lethargy,Weakness,Tremors,Bloody urine,Changes in thirst and urination

This will not be an at home fix.....you will have to go to ER where they can get fluids and at least some decontamination with activated charcoal. Kidney failure can also occur from this so going to ER and getting fluids very important part of treatment.

Hope this helps you,but let me know if you need additional assistance.

Sincerely, DRB
