Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!I am glad to hear that the bag had no string and was used but the amount of caffeine in a dog this size can be concerning. CLICK HERE for more information on caffeine issues in dogs where it lists clinical signs as:
If your dog ingested this within the last hour then you can induce vomiting with 3% hydrogen peroxide 1 tsp per ten pounds (i.e. 1 tsp) then walk around to mix it in the stomach and agitate the lining. If no vomiting within 10-15 minutes it can be repeated once only in hopes of inducing vomiting.If there is no vomiting then I would consider a veterinary er to give stronger medications to induce vomiting. The caffeine maybe an issue but with his size and the bag the second concern is obstruction from the bag itself.I hope this information makes sense but please let me know how else I can assist you both today
