My Dog Ate a Slug What Do I Do?

Answer

Slugs and snails are a nuisance in any yard or garden, but they are particularly concerning to any dog that might consume them. If a dog eats a slug or snail, it can cause a great health risk to the dog because these creatures may act as an transitional host for lungworms and heartworms. Watch for signs in your dog such as extreme coughing and possibly coughing up blood. Nosebleeds might occur, as well. Your dog can be treated with worm medication, though, if caught in time. If your dog has more serious symptoms, it might require a blood transfusion ore other medication. Talk to your veterinary profession for the best advice.

Not good at all. You need to get you dog to the vet asap. Lungworm is caught by eating slugs and if the slugs died through being poisoned then your little dog could get very sick.
