Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Welcome to JustAnswer. My name is***** and I'll be happy to help out today.
D-Con is very deadly in even just a small amount! If your dog ate this within the last 2 hours we need to cause him to vomit to evacuate any possible D-Con.
With hydrogen peroxide. The dose is 1ml per pound of weight. How much does your dog weigh?
So 4045ml would be the best. This is 8- 9 teaspoons.
That's 40 - 45 ml.
After getting him to vomit, he should have activated charcoal to bind any remaining toxin into his gi tract and then passed out in feces. Following this treatment, he should be on daily Vit. K for 2 ti 3 weeks. This will take a prescription from your vet, and for that your vet will need to examine your dog and evaluate what he needs.
When he does vomit, please save the vomitus in a plastic bag so that your vet can examine it. D-Con is in blue granules usually.
You're welcome! After D-Con ingestion or possible ingestion, I us now andually also want to begin Vit. K, however, waiting a day or 2 is OK. If you have the D-Con box, please take that with you to the vet. Also, would you please let me know the active ingredient in what your dog ate. There are some older formulas that have been discontinued. Thanks!
Wow, sorry that was miss typed! I meant to say that I usually recommend Vit. K even with evacuation of the stomach. It's OK to start the Vit. K 1-2 days later.
Don't forget to get that D-Con box if you can for your vet.
