    In regard to the thread about the poor puppy who ate e-juice, I wanted to post this separately. In an emergency, you can give your pet (really) burned toast. It acts as charcoal, absorbs the poison, and makes them throw up (pup-chuck). You can also buy a bottle of syrup of ipecac over-the-counter to keep on hand, which is given to induce vomiting. My grocery store has it in the baby food section.

    When my dog snatched and ate almost a whole bag of Hersey's Dark Chocolate Kisses, I rushed him to the emergency vet, where he stayed for 2 nights while they observed him for seizures. Next time I saw my regular vet, he told me about the burned toast. I could have saved $1,500!

    Thanx for the great info. Vet visits are so expensive. And stuff always happens on the weekend or late at night when if can even get a vet the fees are doubled

    That's great info because we can be as careful as possible and accidents do happen knowing how to deal with them when they do happen is the hard bit. For some reason i usually opt for the run around panicing and waving my arms about like an idiot routine. But now i will at least know i can help, i would still have to go down to the vet just to make certain it has worked and get the all clear

    Will dogs willingly eat really burnt toast?

    I think the question is, will dogs willingly turn down any form of human food? :lol:

    Ha Ha! I've always been a cat person, and they are very finicky. Especially if they know you WANT them to eat something:blink: I do have a couple of dogs (outdoor only) but I've never tried to coerce them into eating anything.

    I got a black Pomeranian that can pick a pill out of people food in a heartbeat.
    The only way I can get it down her throat is to put it in meat. a piece of ham or bologna and sometimes that does not work...

    Dogs usually love peanut butter. A pill coated with it is very hard to resist.

    I had a friend who tried everything with her dog, meat, cheese, peanut butter, shoving it as far as she could down it's throat, nothing worked. The dog had seizures so the medication was a must have. One day she dropped her own baby aspirin (heart issues) on the floor and by the time she got out only a third of the phrase "don't eat that!" the dog had. From then on she dropped the dog's pill on the floor and loudly commanded "don't eat that". Never had another problem pilling the dog. :laugh:

    Too funny! One of my cats, when she was a kitten, snatched my son's Adderal (for ADD) off of the table and ate it before I could get to her. Adderal is a stimulant. That cat didn't sleep for over 24 hours! So, of course, I didn't either! She watched a ceiling fan with fascination for hours. Maybe I'll try your friends method if I ever have to give her a pill.

    My 10mo puppy ate a 5ml bottle of e-juice.

    I took her to the vet, they asked if she was freaking out or anything. When I said that she seemed fine, but I was just being cautious they said to bring her back if she started acting weird or having seizures.

    In her defense she is a 70lb giant poodle puppy.

    But, the vet didn't seem too concerned BUT size makes a huge difference. Based on the chocolate formula the theobromine in milk chocolate: milk chocolate=45mg/oz= toxicity at 1 oz eaten/pound body weight. my dog would have to 6 POUNDS of it within a 1hr period for it to be considered toxic.
