I don't know how much time passed between when he ingested the hydraulic fluid and when you took him to the veterinarian but most of the time when they ingest a toxin of this sort, we will administer a product called activated charcoal to try to minimize and decrease absorption of the toxin into the body. If it had been several hours between when he ingested the Toxin and when you took him into the vet hospital that maybe why they did not administer the activated charcoal. I think it was good that they gave cerenia and fluids as we really want to make sure that we minimize any chance of vomiting. If you give me his weight I can also give you a dose of Pepcid AC which is an acid reducer and may help to calm his stomach. What we don't know at this point is how the toxin is affecting his system. If he is not getting better and continuing to be lethargic with a decreased appetite an inability to taken fluids, and he will need to go back to a veterinary hospital for more aggressive treatment. The other aspect of this whole situation is ensuring that the talks and did not affect his liver and kidneys and an adverse way. This would require a chemistry and CBC to ensure that all values are normal. In the meantime all you can do a supportive care so you can do Pepcid AC and small intermittent meals a very Bland easily digestible foods such as rice, yogurt, low sodium chicken broth, and chicken breast.

I was trying to say that we need to make sure that the toxin did not affect his liver and kidney values and his overall long-term health.

Honestly, if he is not doing better by tomorrow I really think he needs to go in and have more aggressive treatment including blood work and fluid therapy including anti-nausea medications. If he is getting really severe and unstable this evening and there is an emergency hospital close to you you could always go this evening as well. Better to be safe.
