I have two dogs at home. One of them is a corgi and the other is a pekingese.
I usually release them to the garden to do their “business” and also to get some air.
They usually spend 15 minutes outside and then scratch by the door to let me know that they are done.
However there was a strange day when my dog took a longer time outside and none of them came by the door.
Suddenly my corgi barks and I run outside to find out what my dog wants me to see.
I’m shocked to find that my pekingese is laying on the ground looking sick and there is a white foam on his mouth.
I panicked and rushed to the pet hospital nearby.
The doctor said my dog would be gone if I didn’t encounter my dog briefly. He was diagnosed to have plant poisoning.
Relieved to know that my dog is safe, I begin to worry about the health of the other dog.
Furthermore, about the plant that might poison my dog! After knowing my pekingese have to stay at the hospital.
