Unhappy OH NO! Vomiting

Kona started throwing up about 20 minutes ago... It's been 3 times. And it looks like TWIZZLERS! There was some in the bedroom earlier, and I think he might have gotten into them while I was gone taking my oldest son to the dentist. Daddy was here with them, but I guess he wasn't paying attention. I was wondering if he is going to be okay? I didn't want to induce vomiting, he's doing that on his own, but are twizzlers toxic. And is there something I should be giving him? I took his food away, and just have water in his bowl. I've never had this happen before. I'm scared for my sweet boy. I called the vet, but he hasn't called back yet.. can anyone help..

Well, if it was twizzlers, its just sugar and other crap.. I would not worry about it to much. Obviously it did not agree with his stomach. ughhhhh

Since I've got Beamer, our house has gone to being pretty clean to VERY clean.. I just do not want to risk him getting into something thats lying around.. Our house is like a museum now... nothing is ever left out.. lol

Ya, I don't know how he got into them, they were a NEW pack of them, not opened and on the computer desk, so he must have found a way to get them... the kids said they didn't give him any, which was my first thought, but they can't open the wrappers so I guess he's just OVERLY smart for his own good. I generally put everything very high and in plastic containers with lids (kid safe) I just didn't do it with this yet.... Lesson learned!!!!

I used to have a dog who loved Twizzlers-- he never had any problems, but sometimes crashed after all the sugar!

Well, I guess it just didn't agree with his tummy. Someone else told me their dog loves twizzlers, and they've never had a problem, but I dont feed my animals anything but their food, too scary!
LOL
I know the kids will randomly give the birds something we are eating..... but I try to really limit those to very very seldom.
whew, I'm happy he'll be okay. He's sleeping!

You also have to take into the account his size and how many twizzlers he actually ate! Kona is very young and he probably ate way too many of them. I would keep a close eye on him and if he doesn't get better by the morning then take him into the vet. Although the vet's office will probably have some suggestions for you as well.

I'm sure Kona will be fine, though I can understand the scare! He might have diarrhea as well, so watch out for that.

Thanks so much! both ends???? Ew.. the one end is bad enough! I am not good with bodily functions!LOL Oh well. Do whatcha gotta do! I got a call back from the vet.. they said pretty much what Lina said. Bring him in if he's not better in the a.m. but wouldn't be too concerned. I am praying he'll be fine. I think he ate at least 1 but maybe 2. As much is coming out, he had to have. Thank you all for your help! So scary!

Poor little guy, hope he is feeling better in the morning Brooke. Give him some extra belly rubs from us.

Although the sugar in the Twizzlers could be a concern, my first thought was the SIZE of the pieces.

I don't know about "digestion" and that sort of thing, but could they cause a blockage?
