Ello! My Boston terrier

Customer Question

Hello! My Boston terrier ate a cutting of lantana that I had planted in a pot. I caught her and she quickly stopped. After coming inside, she vomited a few times and I could see the leaves she had ingested. Today she went on a day trip with us and she seemed fine and very happy. She had a very dark loose stool today but she ate normally. Tonight she began vomiting again at an alarming rate and I heard her just a few minutes ago and she had had diarrhea in my kitchen that she couldn't hold in. Poor thing, what can I do to help her?

Hi Steffanie,
I am glad to hear that she is well and is on the mend. Since we didn't get to chat about her situation, I will refer you back to customer service for a refund.
Take care,
Dr. B.
