Eucalyptus isn't significantly toxic to your dog but does contain the irritant eucalyptol oil which is likely to have caused his vomiting. I would wait an hour after his last vomiting episode and then attempt to dilute however much oil was ingested by overfeeding and offering tasty fluids such as milk, cream, broths, and bouillons. There's no specific antidote for such an ingestion. If he became depressed and weak from the eucalyptol, his vet would treat his symptomatically and supportively. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
