In case your dog gets allergy attack, you need to know how to deal with it.
This is what I would do:
1) Basically check if my dog can still move.
2) Try to feed water
3) If my dog is still eating the poison/toxic, command the dog to drop the food or remove it by force
4) Make sure everything is under control (No mess lying around to be tripped over)
5) Call my Vet
6) Bring my dog to the Vet
And something for you to think... cure for people who are allergic to dogs!
