Hello again and thanks for waiting. I have worked out an answer for you below ... 1. The information I have is that Trumpet Vine is not that toxic to dogs, it is not listed on the ASPCA poisonous plants database for example. However when I looked into thing further I found that it does contain elements such as atropine and scopolamine, so if enough { Probably a lot } was consumed then you might see the sort of symptoms your dog is experiencing but from a toxin point of view this is unlikely to be a serious or fatal incident. 2. Given the above it is always possible that what you are seeing is not related to trumpet vine, I would say from the fact that he is lethargic that it is possible that it is also possible that Fred is running a temperature and so may be in the grip of some kind of infection. 3. I normally like to suggest home remedies if I can do this safely but in your case I think it is not worth the risk as it could well be that antibiotics would be what is needed if he is indeed running a temperature, but you should be aware that a range of other diagnosis are also possible. In the meantime until you can get him to a vet all you can do is to keep him comfortable and reassured and make sure he is taking fluids regularly.I am sorry I cannot safely give you any more specific advice via the internet. I hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you. Regards, ***** be kind enough to rate my service to you after we have concluded our dialogue, such feedback helps me maintain the quality of my answers.
