Customer Question

Expert:  Dr. Kara replied 1 year ago.

Hello, my name is***** and I have over 20 years of experience as a veterinarian. I am sorry to hear that Knobby & Sprokett got into something they should not have.

Some things are digested and absorbed more quickly than others and somethings are so toxic a few bites can be lethal.

In most cases if the pup vomits within 30 minutes of eating something that they should not have eaten, the dog vomits until he is no longer bringing up any ingesta, but rather just bringing up mucous and gagging, then the pup's stomach is likely clear.

In instances where dogs eat highly toxic things like Sago Palms however a small amount could still be deadly, and thus it makes sense to have them examined and treated by an emergency veterinarian even when it appears they have vomited the toxic parts.

Please let me know if you have any further questions.
