My dog just got into a container of Macadamia cookies from

My dog just got into a container of Macadamia nut cookies from Subway. I'm not sure how many he ate, as I wasn't the one who purchased them. He ate at least one, maybe two or three (I'm not certain). He's 21 lbs. He ate them maybe a half hour ago. I know you can enduce vomiting but I've tried before (not today, years ago) and couldn't make him do it. I don't know what I need to do, or what I should do, as the vet is 4 hours away and closed now.

We have a 5.5 month old catahoula lab mix female puppy,

We have a 5.5 month old catahoula lab mix female puppy, about 35 lbs. currently. I came home from work Monday and found an old vitamin bottle that had been on the kitchen counter FOREVER...I mean YEARS... open, empty, with the label chewed off. I think it had a couple of lysene, a couple of juice plus type supplements, and EITHER a couple of zyrtec or aleve (They are both shaped about the same). I don't know if they were scattered or eaten, but I would suspect eate, since she loves to scour for nibblets everywhere. To complicate things, among her nibblet scavenging behavior, it's hybiscus time, and she makes it her goal to rid the neighborhood of the fruits they drop anytime she has an opportunity. I only know this because several weeks back, I saw the seeds in her poop, and made sure she does not go in the back yard unsupervised, until I can get a chance to cut down the bushes. We had seed-free poop for a good while now, but apparently someone (no one is confessing) allowed her to get into them again, as evidenced by poop. This was noted on Wednesday, the same day I had given her her heartworm med. Wednesday night, she vomited several times. Like 6. There were hybiscus(persimmon) seeds in it, too. I put her on a diet of pumpkin, red cabbage, fermented sardines, and goats milk. She vomited once last night, a much smaller amount, and once today, even smaller still. She has plenty of appetite, is peeing like usual, but her poop is darker and more dense than normal. The dense I would understand, since she vomited so much Wednesday, but it's the darker that has me wondering. It's not black, tarry poop, just dark, like chocolate. I would think that's because of the diet change, but from inspection (yes, I'll study that poop!) the first of the pumpkin didn't process till this morning, and there was only 1 persimmon seed. Her gums and ears are light pink, and get pinker with exercise. She's not her usual spaz self, but still plays plenty, and has a good wag about the tail. I mean, was it the 4 year old medicine that she may not have taken hitting her two days later, or heartworm medicine, or persimmon seeds that started all this? Oh, and she had the pepper shaker in the floor open, with pepper everywhere on Monday, too.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name?Customer: GracieJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Gracie?Customer: Not that I can think of...she's a smart, lovely, curious puppy.

I rescued a 7 year old Miniature Schnauzer 7 weeks ago and

Hello, I rescued a 7 year old Miniature Schnauzer 7 weeks ago and she has been fantastic. In great health, fantastic teeth, very active and fit. I feed her Honest Kitchen Dehydrated food - 1/2 cup with warm water and a tsp of coconut oil and scoop of E3 Live for dinner and for breakfast 1/2 cup Orijen Senior dog food. She also usually gets a Terrabone dental chew and some low-cal treats during the day. Yesterday I fed her her breakfast, she came over and sniffed it, then walked away - she usually takes it down immediately. So I took her for a walk, she came home and ate it. Dinner came around and same thing, eventually ate after our walk. Today was a repeat of yesterday except she didn't get the a.m. walk, but eventually ate the food. I took her out for a long off leash game of fetch this afternoon (it was pretty hot) where she got some reward treats (took those down no problem). She came home and regurgitated a good amount of food. Dinner came around and it been in her bowl for 2 hours and she's only eaten half, again she normally eats it all immediately. She didn't regurgitate any food after dinner. Otherwise, she seems totally herself, follows me everywhere, excited for walks and play time and has pooped twice today (very normal poops). My thought, which I started tonight at dinner is to only feed her the dehydrated food with no coconut oil or E3 Live for both dinner and breakfast to see if maybe there is an issue with giving her two different types of food or the supplements. Curious on your thoughts. She's been on this split diet for about 2 weeks and no issues until just yesterday. Prior to this she was getting just the Orijen Kibble.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the miniature schnauzer?Customer: Not that I can think of. I know they are prone to pancreatitis, but she has no other symptoms besides the lack of appetite. And not sure if the regurgitation was just from over extending her play in the heat.

Squirrel looks hungry even after feeding. What can I do?

It is the weekend. I own a campground. Our customers brought up a baby squirrel. It appears to be maybe 5-6 weeks old. They said they fed it water. I took over and bought it puppy formula. Long story short, it has a clicking noise. Looks like it is still hungry and not as active. I don't know of a rehabilitation center in my area. It has very deep breathing. You can see its little body moving up and down.

I have a 12 year old chiweenie. I believe she has an upset

I have a 12 year old chiweenie. I believe she has an upset stomach that is causing her a lot of discomfort. She is very restless and will not settle in. She is drinking water although she did throw up what little she ate earlier. She had a normal bowel movement earlier today. She has been like this before and it usually passes in a few hours. It has been going on for 12 hours now and I'm concerned.

I just fertilized my potted fruit tree this morning, while

I just fertilized my potted fruit tree this morning, while outside I see my male 50 lb Border collie/ German Shepard with his nose in the pot. After yelling at him he pulls his head out I don't see much of the fertilizer on his muzzle. I would imagine he may have gotten two licks out. I opened his mouth, and there was a few specks of it in his mouth. Saw maybe what would measure out to be 1/4 teaspoon on his muzzle. I looked in the pot, and it didn't look that disturbed. The fertilizer was Miracle gro's organic natures care. I am not worried about the actual fertilizer. I am more curious about the bacteria they put in. rhizosphere bacillus, Bacillus licheniformis, Bacillus megaterium, Bacillus polymyxa, Bacillus subtilis, pumilus, and Paenibacillus azotofixans
