I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. The organic fertilizers are more problematic than the non-organic because not only does the organic matter increase nitrogen content which is the worrisome factor in these fertilizers but also contains either bone or blood meal which can be fortified with iron in toxic levels. Please see here: http://www.petpoisonhelpline.com/poison/bone-meal/ As you'll read, the bone meal can form a foreign body in your dog's gastrointestinal tract as well.

There's no antidote and so treatment is supportive and symptomatic. Inducing emesis once he's symptomatic isn't appropriate. IV fluids in an attempt to rehydrate and electrolyte balance him are indicated and antacid and antiemetic drugs are also given by needle. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
