Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?1) When did hunter consume these? 2) Have you seen any vomiting?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
he did vomite but I did some more checking and what he ate was some snail bait
Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 6 months ago.
Neither of these are good. To start, daffodil bulbs are toxic to dogs and cause vomiting, diarrhea, seizures, coma and death. Snail bait is metaldehyde which is also toxic. More info here on snail bait ingestion: http://www.gladesvillevet.com.au/pages/newsletters/newsletter/article.php?idArticle=19053And daffodil ingestion: http://www.provet.co.uk/petfacts/healthtips/daffodilpoisoning.htmThe consumption of one or both of these may be enough to cause death. I would waste no time in getting your companion to a vet's office for treatment. Did my response help to answer all of the questions that you had regarding your companion?

he ate this around 8pm late nite
Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 6 months ago.
Thanks for the additional information. There's no way to remove this from his system now. Treatment will involve stabilization and treating his symptoms. The links above give details on what treatment protocols are typically used. I'm sorry I don't have better news for you. Depending on what is eaten, we can often induce vomiting to keep the pets from absorbing it. We have roughly 2 hours to do this in most cases. Since your boy ate this around 12 hours ago, it's too late to induce vomiting.
