Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
My name is***** and I will help you.
Hosta is a saponin type of plant that can cause some intestinal irritation.
It is sort of like soap in that it is irritating bur not lethal.
Toxins are dose related, so part of a leaf in a small dog would be more irritating than in a Great Dane.
How much does Lily weigh?
I'm also going to give you her dosage for 3% hydrogen peroxide.
Hydrogen peroxide induces vomiting which gets rid of the hosta leaf, pills or
whatever your dog gets into. Activated charcoal is given after inducing vomiting IN SOME CASES. It all depends on what the dog ate.
Hosta leves irritate the gut and can also cause vomiting if eaten in a large
quantity. But they do not damage the liver, kidneys or nervous system like much more potent toxins can.
I asume that Lily is fine. I'd still like to give you that hydrogen peroxide dose for future reference. But I need her weight.
