Hi , I'm James DVM MRCVS and would like to help you with your question
Daffodils contain calcium oxalate crystals, alkaloids (particularly lycorine) and glycosides. These are present in all parts of the plant but are found in greatest concentration in the bulb
The symptoms you have mentioned are part of the common signs for such poisoning
Thank you for the information regarding the fact that daffodils are poisonous - what can I do in the way of treatment?
Thank you for your reply indicating that daffodils are poisonous but how can I treat the dog to get it back to good health.
I have written a long answer in regards XXXXX XXXXX course but I can seen that it did not register with the website :(
I shall write it again
neurological signs are rather rare but can still happen and need to be closely monitored.
in regards XXXXX XXXXX ,empting the stomach should be done right after the incident (but it's not relevant at this point we need to ensure adequate hydration and give anti-emetics if require and of course symptomatic and supportive care, for any other of the symptoms Evie might be presenting with
Im not sure as to Evies well being currently but I would assume she is doing better as you seemed rather cool in your response.
I would pay a visit to your vet this morning and have her just generaly examined to see if all is ok.
Prognosis is excellent :)
I hope this has been helpful .
if you have any more questions on the subject I would be happy to help .
all the best and good morning
