    Default Need quick advice - my dog ingested wasp poison

    Ok, this is not about Maggie.. It is actually my 9 month old shepherd mix baby, Cato. He got into the outside trash and got a bone that had been sprayed with wasp spray about a week ago. Its a meaty bone I took from Maggie cuz she was breaking off and swallowing pieces... I put it out of reach on a table and forgot about it. The next day it had ants all over it and the table... all I had was wasp spray to kill them, so I used it and then put everything in the trash. Anyway, this morning I found that Cato had gotten the bone and had already eaten all the "good bits" off of it.. It took me 30 minutes of chasing him around the yard to get it away from him. I finally was able to trick him with some cheese...
    I already gave peroxide and he has already vomited. It looks like most or all of it has "come up"
    but now I just need to know what to do next... Should I give him lots of water... some milk.. banannas... bread... or nothing?
    Any ideas?

    I would just watch him, call the vet for some advice too.... let him be and see how he is responding -- if anything is not right get to the vet.

    Thanks. That's kinda what I figured. I called the ASPCA poison control hotline, but didn't have the $65 needed to get advice.. I called our vet and they said to make sure he has plenty of water and to just watch him for anything abnormal... so now I'm just nervously watching... right now he is chasing a fly around the kitchen... goofy dog

    Hi, so sorry you're going through this worry. I agree with Christine, if he threw it up, he's probably going to be fine. Just watch him, give him lots of water, and if something doesn't seem right, take him to the vet. Sending love, hugs and prayers that he is okay. Pls keep us posted.

    The recording says it is because they are a non-profit and rely on volunteers and donations.. so the $65 is to support their efforts... If I had it, I would have paid it...
    When I am in better finacial position, I think I will include them in the charities we try to help.. Perhaps if they had more financial support, they wouldn't have to charge someone for advice during a potential emergency.
    Sucks for now, ... but that's what you guys are here for.. I always read the best stuff on here anyway.

    OMG... $65 for poison advice?!!! My boxer got into some bug spray years ago, and I freaked took her to the vets (she was foamy)... turns out most commercial sprays are watered down, so she was fine!!! Since she already vomited I would just watch her closely...

    I think Cato will be okay now that he's vomited out and yes, already great feedback above! That's scary tho...I sometimes use Raid to kill ants inside the house and am paranoid my boys will ingest the bug spray too. And i had no idea about the $65 fee the ASPCA requests for poison info. That's a lot of dough!

    I hope Cato's ok. How's she doing now? I had to call ASPCA too about a year ago and was surprised at the $65. Wilson ate a pain med but I wasn't familiar with it at the time and got scared. It was Tramadol so he just got sleep for a bit. It doesn't cost me that much to walk into my vets office or call them. Most vet places have a 24 hour number too that you can call. Sure they'll want you to bring them in but at least they'll hopefully be able to tell you what you need to do right then.

    to you and Cato.

    I'm late to this, but hope he is doing well. Good thinking on your part to give the peroxide.
