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 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:

When you say he cannot stand, do you mean he is weak and cannot keep himself standing up? Or do you mean he cannot move his back legs at all voluntarily?

What was in the vomit?

Can he keep anything down?

Has he had any diarrhea? Any black stool?

Are his gums pink or pale/white?

Any belly pain? Any breathing changes?

What toxin do you think he has been exposed to?
