Hiking can be fun,just be safe & bring a med. kit for your dog.As my previous post re.mushrooms,Benedryl can help,though knowing how to make your dog vomit a suspect item is helpful.Once done & he seems fine,you may have caught it in time.Lethargy,pale gums,weakness are signs you need a vet ASAP.A recent dog show facility had set out poison in late winter & many rat carcasses were found in the show grounds.Most avoided them,1 person did induce vomitting,though another fell sick a 100 miles away & died. So be safe bring a med kit & learn how to make your dog vomit suspect items.

Great advice, good idea to bring a kit everytime we travel with our dogs. But how do you make a dog vomit???

After I had to rush my dog to the vet once (he had eaten some chocolate cake... my fault ), she told me to be careful inducing vomiting. Really the best thing is to have the phone number for poison control on your phone, and call them. But if you do induce vomiting, don't try doing it by sticking your finger down their throat!
