Let's see if we can get Salem to vomit that up by dosing him with one measuring tablespoon (15 mL) of 3% hydrogen peroxide by means of a small poultry baster placed between his cheek teeth and cheek. He should vomit within 15 minutes. If not, repeat the same dose. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
