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?
Sure. Just put the request for the call through the service.
How much did she ingest? What part of the plant?
Thank you so much. Did she eat any of the bulbs? Or just the green tips?
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.
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.
They are fine, just keep the puppy away from them.
You are so very welcome. Please keep me apprised.

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.
