Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!

Cape lilac berries are toxic to dogs (and people as well). In regards ***** ***** signs we would need to watch out for with Bertie, the most common will be GI upset (ie drooling, appetite loss, vomiting, belly pain, and diarrhea). Further to that, we can see lethargy and weakness and some dogs will develop a "drunken" or wobbly gait. With more severe intoxications, we can also see changes to their breathing, heart beat, tremors, collapse and seizures. All signs will tend to arise within a few hours of eating the berries (or any other part of the cape lilac).

In this situation, if you think she has had some, you did the right thing in inducing vomiting. If you aren't sure she has had a berry or twig you can continue monitoring her at this stage to see if any hint of the above signs develop (and if they do please have her seen by her vet for symptomatic treatment).

Please let me know how else I can assist you both today!
