Expert:  Kelly Hill replied 2 months ago.

Can you post the name of the product please?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Espoma. Organic rose tone rose and flower food
Expert:  Kelly Hill replied 2 months ago.

Is Dixie still not able to walk? Is she breathing normally?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
She is more alert but can't stand. She was shaking badly earlier. Heart was pounding hard but now she seems relaxed
Expert:  Kelly Hill replied 2 months ago.

Is her abdomen is bloated and she can't stand, you really need to get her to a local emergency clinic. If you do not know of one, I can help you find one. It sounds like she is in shock.

I am totally unable to do so until morning. Thats why I reached out online.. I can go as early as 6 am. tomorrow. She wants to drink water.
Expert:  Kelly Hill replied 2 months ago.

I would let her have some water, but in small increments. What type of puppy and how old? What color are her gums? Is there anything else she could have gotten into? I would not expect her abdomen to be bloated with just eating a small amount of fertilizer. It can cause gastrointestinal issues, but could possibly cause liver or kidney injury in large volumes. Did she eat a large amount?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
I really don't know. I was putting it out and she visited each place I put it, maybe 2 cups total on rose bushes. and I ended up chasing her with the water hose. I just took her out to pee, holding her up with a towel around her middle. She is a dane pit mix and alittle over 4 mo approx. She was a stray

Did she eat dinner tonight? Could she have broken into the dog food?

Posted by JustAnswer at customer's request) Hello. I would like to request the following Expert Service(s) from you: Live Phone Call. Let me know if you need more information, or send me the service offer(s) so we can proceed.
Expert:  Kelly Hill replied 2 months ago.

It is absolutely okay for her to lay in the grass to urinate.

Expert:  Kelly Hill replied 2 months ago.

The gurgling stomach typically means she will have diarrhea.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Then thats good??
Expert:  Kelly Hill replied 2 months ago.

good in the sense that hopefully this will help with the bloated abdomen. Did she drink water?

Expert:  Kelly Hill replied 2 months ago.
