Hi, I can help you with your question. How much does your dog weigh?

60 lbs
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
He is a 8 month old chocolate lab with a sensitive stomach is acting normal as of now it happened about 2 hours ago
Expert:  brisadog replied 1 year ago.

How long ago did he ingest them?

Expert:  brisadog replied 1 year ago.

Oh, I see. We should induce vomiting. Give 3 tablespoons of 3% hydrogen peroxide mixed with a small amount of milk to get him to drink it.

Expert:  brisadog replied 1 year ago.

Then take him for a brisk walk to mix his stomach contents. He should vomit within 20 minutes.

Expert:  brisadog replied 1 year ago.

It may be too late to decontaminate, but I recommend that we try quickly.

How much is to much throw up
Expert:  brisadog replied 1 year ago.

This dose is high enough to cause GI signs including ulcers as well as kidney damage. If you don't have hydrogen peroxide at home, take him straight to the emergency hospital. They can induce vomiting, administer activated charcoal and start him on IV fluids to protect his kidneys.

Expert:  brisadog replied 1 year ago.

Too much throw up? I'm not clear what you are asking.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ok I'm mixing it up now
Expert:  brisadog replied 1 year ago.

Good.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ok we are walking now
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
he's running around playing and doing sprints showing no signs of any pain or anything
Expert:  brisadog replied 1 year ago.

OK, it's been 20 minutes. If he hasn't vomited yet, it's unlikely he will. I highly recommend you get him to a vet now to protect his kidneys.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
To give him an iv?
Expert:  brisadog replied 1 year ago.

To continue treatment with activated charcoal (to minimize absorption of the Aleve) and IV fluids for at least 48 hours, while monitoring his kidney values.
