Customer Question

Tonight while we were out, our dog ate a fair amount of potatoes with long sprouts. He has thrown up several times. What should I do? I have read that the sprouts can be dangerous. Should I give him food and water to dilute it?

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help. Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me: How is your lad at the moment? Lethargic, weak, any other signs? Has his vomiting settled?Can he keep water down? Are his gums nice and pink (not white/pale)? Moist or sticky? If you press on his belly, does he have any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain? Any diarrhea?
