    My dog has been vomiting all day, and I think she may have been poisoned. I think it is probably something in the yard that she ate, like black walnuts or plant bulbs. The vet gave her a shot to control the vomiting, and also put something like an IV into her back to give her fluids. The vet also gave some pills that are supposed to control the vomiting.

    My question, does anyone know of anything else I can do to help my dog? She has trouble keeping anything down, even water.

    Since she is still vomiting I probably wouldn't feed her at all right now and just try to keep some water down. Later I would try to feed her plain cooked rice. Maybe a tiny amount of cooked chicken. If she can keep that down then slowly start her back on her normal food.

    Give her some peroxide - this will help get anything else up that is poison. It is good she is puking -- at least she isn't keeping it all inside.

    Once you give her peroxide - she will throw up - let her -- then give her some time and offer gatorade or pedialite to her to drink. You don't want to see a lot of blood - you may see a little - this is from her straining.

    I worked at a pet store for several years but I am not a vet. I would recommend Piedialite instead of water and a small amount of pepto bismo. This what the store vet recommended other then what they could do.

    I agree, follow your vet's advice. Everyone here is just guessing about your dog based upon your post, your vet has seen her, and you already paid for his education when you paid your bill. Rice with a little chicken is a great tummy soother, or you could try cooked rice with a little chicken broth or even a scrambled egg.

    If and when we suspect poisoning I administer charcoal from the pharmacy, no I don't crush briquettes, I buy human grade charcoal, it is cheap, and one of those things that when you need it, you don't have time to run to the store.

    Good luck with your dog, I know this must be scary. I'll be praying for you both.

    Well, she is just laying there sleeping, I got some Charcocaps and gave one to her. She seems to be feeling a little better. I'll have to see what happens in the morning.

    Thanks for the help, I'll keep you updated.

    The charcoal is only effective if given immediately after the animal is poisoned, and when you give it you want to make sure they have lots of liquids, because it can get kind of hard in their intestines.
