He weighs about 23-24lbs. He ate it about 15 mins ago. He ate like half of a size 6 diaper maybe half cup to a cup. Yes I have hydrogen peroxide
Please give me 5-10 minutes to type your answer. Thank you.
Jennifer, the concern would be a possible obstruction. I would try to make him vomit. To induce vomiting this is what you can do:1- Give him 1 tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide 3% orally to induce vomiting.2- Allow him to walk for a minute and move his belly to mix stomach content with peroxide. If he does not vomit within 5-10 minutes, repeat it again. Can give a total of 3 times 5-10 minutes apart.3- If he does not vomit or you do not see the diaper absorbent in the vomit change his diet for the next 2-3 days to rice (75%) and boiled boneless chicken or ground beef (25%). The idea is for the rice to help pass the absorbent in the feces. Make sure you check his feces; if you don't find the absorbent within 48 hours I would have him checked by your veterinarian for x-rays with barium4- If at any point during the next few days you see the following symptoms: lethargy, anorexia, vomiting, constipated or diarrhea, etc. follow up immediately with a veterinarian. These are all signs of a possible obstruction of the intestinal tract. In the meantime, observe him and change his diet as above then wean back into his regular diet.
