Thank you,Now I have to say that I am quite concerned about your wee one.The reason is because bread dough can cause our pets a few different problems when eaten. To start, we’d be worried about bloat from how much he had, but there is also the risk of the yeast in the dough causing even more severe issues. Specifically as it ferments in the warm stomach, we can see expand to cause even more bloat risk but also it release alcohols which can in turn cause alcohol toxicity in our dogs.....

In this case, we need to act fast. Ideally, since we don't have time to spare, it'd be ideal to have him seen urgently so that apomorhpine (a very strong injectable emetic) can be administered just get this out of the stomach and avoid any adverse issues. Otherwise, you can try inducing vomiting at home by giving 3% hydrogen peroxide orally at a dose of 1ml per pound. (2 teaspoons per 10 pounds of body weight). You can give it via dropper, syringe, turkey baster – we just want to get it in. After giving this orally, move the abdomen around or get your wee one walking about to get things mixing. This should usually lead to vomiting. If it is unsuccessful after 10 minutes then we again need him treated by injection. And while getting him there, we can give cold/ice water to chill his stomach and slow the fermentation process. Once he sees his vet, they can get this out of his stomach +/- start IV fluids to help flush any alcohol already in his system and get him through this without issue.
