Hello there. This is Dr.Paul Brazzell. I am sorry that you are having trouble with Hazil.

I can understand how stressful it is for you. I will do my utmost best to help you. Please note that it may take a few minutes to see my reply to your posts. Discussing the case by phone allows me to be more efficient and accurate in assessing the problem. Now, let’s see if we can get this sorted out for you. Do you see any signs out of the ordinary?

I’m available by phone, if that’s easier

Sure. Just put the request for the call through the service.

How much did she ingest? What part of the plant?

She ate lilies growing in the yard, probably around10-15 tips out of the dirt, maybe 1” growth on each. She did look like she was going to pass out on a walk and then vomited when we got home. She acting normal now.
I believe they are orange day lilies

Thank you so much. Did she eat any of the bulbs? Or just the green tips?

There were plant pieces in the vomit

Okay, but no pieces of the bulb?


Thank you so much.

Does she have any other medical problems? Is she taking any medications?


Thank you for that information. Please give me a few minutes to type my recommendations.

Absolutely. Thank you

Okay, I am back. Fortunately, lilies are not toxic to dogs per se. We generally see only gastrointestinal signs when they ingest these. I suspect that we are dealing with acute gastritis. I think that we can manage this at home. But, if the signs do not resolve, an examination would be in order.

Let’s give Pepcid AC at 1 X 10mg tablet per 20 pounds twice daily. This is Famotidine and it decreases the acid in the stomach.

Just put on the finger's tip and place it on the back of the tongue, then hold the mouth closed till swallows.

You can offer Pedialyte, or water to drink starting 2 hours after the first dose. Flavored and Unflavored Pedialyte are both fine.

I would not offer any food until later tonight.

Then, please feed cooked hamburger and rice. Use lean ground beef and strain off the fat before mixing it with the cooked rice. I would feed 3X daily.

Watch for vomiting or continued vomiting, not eating, blood in vomit.

Normally I like clients to continue with this treatment regimen for two days.

On it. Thank you so much! Probably best to dig them out of the yard?

They are fine, just keep the puppy away from them.

Ok. Thanks again for your prompt assistance!

You are so very welcome. Please keep me apprised.

Please feel to reach out to me if you have any more questions regarding this problem or any future concerns. I am here to help!

Curious to know if she had eaten the bulbs if it would have been different?

Yes, the bulbs have about 15 cloves. It would not have been a toxic amount but a lot more.

Sorry, that was for a different client. :)

The severity of the gastrointestinal signs may have been more.

Gotcha. Thanks again!
