You're speaking to Dr. Michael Salkin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm currently typing up my reply. Please be patient. This may take a few minutes.

As you might imagine, the glycerine is likely to have a laxative effect but it's not toxic to Sully. I'm more concerned about the packaging. Was that ingested as well? How long ago did this occur?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
not really - maybe a couple small pieces of lid. The container is intact and the lid is missing a small 1/2 by 1/2 piece only but not sure if he ate that piece,

The suppositories weren't individually wrapped? If so, thank goodness. How long ago could Sully have ingested the suppositories?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
They were not individually wrapped and probably happened in the last hour or so
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 3 months ago.

Thank you. Let's induce emesis with 45 mL (3 measuring tablespoons) of 3% hydrogen peroxide by means of a small poultry baster placed between Sully's cheek teeth and cheek. He should vomit within 15 minutes. If not, please repeat the same dose.
