Welcome to JustAnswer.com! My name is***** and I have been a licensed veterinarian for 10 years. I would be happy to answer your question. I'm sorry to hear about Chloe ingesting the bulb. How many times has she vomited?

Too many to count.

That worries me because she's so small. The bulb itself is not toxic but she's had so much vomiting that I am worried about dehydration. I would get her in to the vet for some anti-nausea medication. They might also treat with fluids depending on how dehydrated she is.
