My dog ate half a bowl of wrapped candy before 4pm today. He threw up twice after 11 & is acting oddly.
He is approx 8 years old. I realized after he vomited there were candy wrappers in it. He had to have eaten them before we got home from work because my fiance thought I had ate the candy & I assumed he ate the candy. Well now he (the dog) is lethargic & is reacting extremely slowly to things he normally jumps over. He has eaten candy in the past & I've contacted my vet & they told me he would vomit & clear itself out. The last time it happened, he did not behave like this after throwing up.

first of all, call the vet
there are a few things that could be wrong, including, but not limited to:
*there are candy wrappers stuck in his airway/throat... this happened to one of our pets previously and we didnt know until after she died.
*he could have eaten a specific kind of sweetener that is poisonous to dogs (i forget what its called but it starts with an x)
he needs to be seen asap.
