I have a small breed snoodle. Today I was fogging my house

Customer Question

I have a small breed snoodle. Today I was fogging my house for insects and I had my pet outside with me all day. I opened the house to air it out, and I left her for 15 minutes, I did not lock her in her cage. She is throwing up, and eating grass and leaves to make her throw up. I suspect that a little of the insect ide may have gotten into her system. What can I do to give her first aid until, I take her to her vet in the morning?

Hello,
I'm Dr. Jo and I'm a licensed veterinarian with more than twenty years of experience. I'm here to help with your question about your snoodle.
I'm so sorry you're having this problem, but glad you're looking for the information you need. You may join the conversation at any time by typing in what you want to say then clicking REPLY or SEND. Then we can chat back and forth until you're satisfied with the information I've provided. I'll do my best to earn your good rating, because that's the only way I receive any compensation for helping you.
In the meantime, in order to help me help you better, I'll need some more information. To start with, can you please tell me:

  • How old is she?
  • Is she otherwise healthy and on no medications?
  • Is she otherwise bright and alert and not showing any signs that this is an emergency like labored breathing?

I'll be standing by and awaiting your reply.Thank you.

Expert:  Dr. Jo replied 8 months ago.

Thanks for your reply.

To start with, I want to be sure you know to seek emergency care for her if she has you worried. I don't want to pretend I can make any kind of a diagnosis through a medium like this and you will need to trust your instincts on if she can wait for care.

Secondly, I'm going to direct you to a wonderful article that spells out exactly how to manage a dog who is vomiting at home while you wait to take her to the vet (or to see if it will run its course).
