Hi, this is Dr. Gabby. As long as it did not have weed killer in it then it should not be that big of a deal. Normally fertilizer can cause some gastrointestinal upset which may include some vomiting, diarrhea, or loss of appetite.If that happens withhold food until the vomiting or diarrhea stops.Then offer a bland diet of plain cooked chicken and rice.To help settle her stomach you can give her Pepcid AC or Zantac.I assume she is over 50 pounds since she is a lab.In that case you can give her one 10 mg Pepcid tablet or 75 mg Zantac tablet every 12 hours as needed.She may not have any signs at all. Does that help? Do you have any additional questions?
