Welcome! I am Dr. Altman, a licensed veterinarian and happy to answer your questions today.
How long ago did Wrangler ingest the miracle gro? How much did he ingest and how much does he weigh please?
He ate it about fifteen minutes ago. I do not know how much, possible a cup, he weighs about 80 lbs.
And what variety of miracle gro there are quite a few
its all purpose water soluble plant food 15 30 15
OK please give me one minute
In the meanwhile, do you have any 3% hydrogen peroxide
No, but I can get some.
According to the msds page:
General Information Very low toxicity for humans and animalsIngestion: Health injuries are not known or expected under normal use
In previous conversations on justanswers who have contacted the company they listed that they do not expect to see any issues with pets except possible gi upset
Okay. I just texted my husband to pick up some hydrogen peroxide, what should i do with it.
I did see that same info on their website.
That was in case we needed it, I do not think that would be necessary at this time
In a dog Wrangler's size eating about a cup you should not see any side effects
But do monitor for any vomiting, swollen belly, diarrhea, discomfort
Sorry for bad grammer and punctuation, I'm a little shook up.
I have had my dogs do things like this before as well, always a good idea to have the peroxide at home for trouble makers in the future though
Thank you so much. I will definitely keep an eye on him. How do I use the peroxide for future reference?
Tonight feed him only half of his normal diet and perhaps a cup of cooked white rice to settle his stomach
1 tsp per 10 pounds
So for his size that would be 2 tbsp & 2 tsp
Ok. He eats anything so it won't be a problem.
Walking him around to mix the peroxide in the stomach and if no vomiting then repeat once in 15 minues
Only good for the first hour after ingestion
But because the acidity of the miracle gro it is not advised to induce vomiting and he should be fine from this
Hubby will be home in about half an hour. We live in Alaska... takes a while to get anywhere
I definitely would still monitor him tonight though
Ok, we will settle back and keep an eye on him, will not induce vomiting
Can I assist with any additional questions today?
You are welcome
I think I'm good for now.
OK good luck!
Thanks.... have a good evening
You as well
