It has been about 2 hrs ago--LYes I do have peroxide

Don, decon has an anticoagulant as the main ingredient which causes bleeding. The effects take about 24 hours to exert it's effects, treatment is with Vitamin K1. For now move quickly and induce vomiting with hydrogen peroxide. This is what you can do:

1- Give him 1 tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide orally to induce vomiting.

2- Allow him to walk for a minute and move his belly to mix stomach content with peroxide. If he does not vomit within 5-10 minutes, repeat it again. Can give a total of 3 times 5-10 minutes apart.

3- Follow up in the morning with family veterinarian to start Vitamin K1.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back. I am happy to address follow-up questions. Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon!
