(eg. description of the frequency and severity of the symptoms

Dog got to the bait sometime over night. It had been placed a couple weeks ago. This am the dog is vomiting and having diarrhea. Color of vomit and stool is fluorescent green. Owner has brought to DVM. Per the vet there was about 1 cup worth of bait put out initially. Discussed the case with the RDVM. The dog is stable at this point. She contacted the PCO first who said this wouldn't be a problem, then contacted the company for the product, who transferred her to us. Discussed the effects of the cellulose bait-typically in dogs our concern is for gastroenteritis. Obstruction is possible, but rare. Typically treatment is supportive. Would want to make sure there are no other possible baits from the past out that the pet could have had access to. On March 27, called back about Romeo. He's clinically doing well, eating, and is on IV fluids. His stools are crumbly and still green, but the stool in his colon feels normal and not hard. He's had 2 doses of Cerenia, yesterday and the day before, and has not had any vomiting. Wondering if he could go home today and be off of fluids, or if he should stay until stools are normal? And if she should send him home with any oral meds or add fiber to the diet? If he's eating well and BAR, and the material is passing, she could send him home. If she wants to continue the canned food to aid in it passing and giving him more fluid intact, that would be fine as well. Usually the biggest concern for the product to absorb water, and possibly lead to a blockage would be within the first 24 hours.
