Hello, you are through to Dr Linda, a UK based vet.Do you know what type of lily?
Customer: replied 6 days ago.
Sorry I don’t all I can tell u is is yellow
Expert:  Linda Simmon replied 6 days ago.
Ok, sure.
In that case, as some lilies can be fatally toxic we need to treat this as a true emergency.
She needs to be brought to a vet immediately who will induce vomiting and reduce toxin absorption with charcoal meals and fluids. They may also run a blood test to assess her kidney function.
