Q. Ate mint plant leavesark and is throwing up. Dog is bichon frise 4 mo ths old
A. Most mint species are non-toxic to dogs, the only exception being pennyroyal. If your dog ate this, he should be seen by a vet right away. Otherwise, he probably just ate too much of it and it irritated his stomach. Withhold food and offer water for 12-24 hours. At the end of that time, give him a very small amount of very bland food, either boiled, unseasoned hamburger meat mixed 50/50 with plain unseasoned white rice, or plain boiled chicken breast, unseasoned, also mixed 50/50 with rice. If this stays down and he acts hungry, offer a little more, until he seems to be back to normal, then gradually introduce him back to his regular food. If he continues to vomit, becomes lethargic, or develops any other adverse symptoms, get him in to a vet right away.
