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.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
How do we make the dog vomit?
Expert:  Dr. Barbara replied 6 months ago.

With hydrogen peroxide. The dose is 1ml per pound of weight. How much does your dog weigh?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
42-45 lbs
Expert:  Dr. Barbara replied 6 months ago.

So 4045ml would be the best. This is 8- 9 teaspoons.

Expert:  Dr. Barbara replied 6 months ago.

That's 40 - 45 ml.

Expert:  Dr. Barbara replied 6 months ago.

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.

Expert:  Dr. Barbara replied 6 months ago.

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.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Thanks. She did vomit. We can treats but no signs of d con. We will be home tomorrow and will see our vet about the Vit K. Thanks for your help.
Expert:  Dr. Barbara replied 6 months ago.

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!

Expert:  Dr. Barbara replied 6 months ago.

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.

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Thanks again. We will see our vet tomorrow. I mistyped also. We did see some treats our dog had ate after she vomited and we did not see any signs of the d con. We are hoping she did not actually eat any. Our dog was sniffing around a neighbors garage and did go up to the d con before we realized.
Expert:  Dr. Barbara replied 6 months ago.

Don't forget to get that D-Con box if you can for your vet.

Expert:  Dr. Barbara replied 6 months ago.

Hi! How's Lucy doing today? Did she see her vet there?

Do you have any further questions or concerns for me? If not, I'd greatly appreciate your rating as this is the only way I can receive credit for our chat.

Thank you,

Dr. Barbara
