Hi, I just caught my 62# dog pulling up a tulip and of course, when I went to take it from her she thought it'd be fun to run around the yard while she ate most of the bulb. I know tulip bulbs are toxic, so far she's acting fine (happened about 20 minutes ago). Is there anything I should do immediately? Our vet is closed, and we haven't had the best experience at emergency vet (but will go if we have to). Thanks for any info.

She's game for- anything that's- fun.

I would have her vomit it up. I know you can give her hydrogen peroxide to make her vomit, but I don't know how much.I would call poison control if I were you. Just know there is a fee for the phone call. It's cheaper than a vet visit. Poison control 800-213-6680. Good Luck! Please let us know how she makes out. smile
