How do I know if my dog has eaten something toxic to them? - Countryside Veterinary Clinic

Any sudden change in behavior, hiding, crying, vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, anemia, or anything like that - if your dog has had some sudden change in the way it's behaving - is enough reason to call your veterinarian and take them in to have a visit.

At that visit, we are very likely to ask a history. Have they been outside where they might've gotten into a mushroom? Have they been inside? What do you feed them? Do they get people food? Anything like that is important, particularly with puppies, because they're known to eat things that they shouldn't.

Don’t try to figure out any sudden change by yourself. Ask for some help, or you can call poison control because there is a dog poison control as well.
