Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that your dog ate a diaper. How long ago did she eat the diaper?
Your best bet is trying to make her vomit this evening so that she brings up as much of the diaper as possible.
I recommend giving her 1-2 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide by mouth. This should make her vomit in about 5-10 minutes. The more she brings up the better. You will be able to tell if she ate any because there will be remnants in the vomit. My concern with leaving it in her stomach is that it could cause a blockage further down the intestines.
Best regards, ***** ***** this answer helps you.

I would still induce vomiting because she is much more at risk from obstruction than she is from absorbing only some of her heart medications.
Medications are very quickly absorbed through the stomach and intestines (usually less than 30 minutes) so she likely already absorbed most of her medications already.
How is Annie doing this morning? Any problems after eating the diaper? Were you able to make her vomit?
Do you have any more questions for me?
