This morning my 5 month old lab threw up on our walk. Several times during the day he has thrown up. My kids just suggested that maybe he was eating the berries from the tree in the front yard. We looked up the tree online and we believe that it is a chinaberry tree. These berries are poisonous to dogs. Since it has been more than 24 hours since he ate them, what should I do now. I called the vet earlier about his vomiting, but I didn't think about the possibility of poisoning. He is still eating like normal and will drink water if I tell him to. I don't want anything to happen to him and now I am scared. Any suggestions? Of course my vet is no longer in and he is on vacation until the end of next week.
No suggestions other than find an Emergency vet. It's too late to induce vomitting at this point, but maybe a vet will have some options.
Uh oh, just seeing this. How is he now?

You should speak to a vet ASAP. If your dog has eaten something you suspect is poisonous you should get advice from a professional. You may find you will have nothing to worry about but until then, do not ignore it. For peace of mind at the very least, speak to a vet. Keep us updated.
Thanks for the concern. He is doing well this morning. Seems back to his old self. The vet I got ahold of wasn't very concerned and told me to watch him for 24 hours. I think because he wasn't listless or lethargic and was still eating and drinking with no diarrhea just the vomiting.
I sat up and listened for him all night... Now I am tired and he wants to play
I'd get rid of the tree.
I agree. I'd get rid of that tree.Originally Posted by kiddsmom
