Hi there,

Thanks for your question. Yes, peroxide can be used to induce vomiting in dogs, and if your boy has ingested this within the last 30 - 60 minutes, then it should hopefully come up pretty easily. There are several ways to induce vomiting, however 3% hydrogen peroxide is the most effective. As it has been about half an hour - he will likely vomit this up pretty easily.
