Hi. My name is***** I'm sorry to hear about this vomit with Teddy. He just vomited this one time? How long ago was that? Is he still pretty alert and active?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Incident occurred at 1PM 29 Oct 2016. It was a single occurrence and dog seems ok. I now suspect ingestion of leaves from plants on balcony.

I'm sorry I'm just now getting back to you. How is Teddy at this time? Was that vomit still the only event of it? If he's acting back to his normal happy self and he's eating / drinking fine with no more vomiting, then the suspicions has to be that he did eat something that just didn't agree with him. Plants can definitely cause some to have stomach upset.
