He ate some mulch which may have had some fertilizer in it.

Customer Question
He ate some mulch...

He ate some mulch which may have had some fertilizer in it. I induced vomiting with peroxide. He is restless, pacing and not drinking.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What sort of animal are we talking about?

11 pound chihuahua

Veterinarian's Assistant: The Expert will know if the Chihuahua will be able to digest that. What is the Chihuahua's name and age?

Bailey 15 yo

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Bailey?

He’s on antibiotics for intestinal issues and pain meds for back pain

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

How long ago did this happen?

How much did he eat?

Did he bring any up with the peroxide?

Any retching, gagging, lip licking, drooling, or vomiting?

Are his gums pink, yellow, or white/pale? Moist or sticky?

If you press on his belly, any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?

Any issues passing stool?
