Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hi, I'm Dr. Peter. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.
1- How long has it been since he ate the bouncey ball?
2- Can you give me more details about the ball like size?
3- Do you have hydrogen peroxide 3%?
Please give me 5 minutes to type your answer. Thanks.
I am sorry, how much does he weigh?
The concern would be a possible obstruction. I would try to make him vomit. This is what you can do:
1- Give him 1 tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide 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- Please let me know if he vomits. I will on stand bye for the next 20 minutes.
He is adorable. :) He appears like 30-40 lbs.
Friend, you were supposed to repeat the peroxide within 5-10 minutes if he did not vomit. At this point I would have him checked by the nearest ER vet and they can try to make him vomit with a medication called apomorphine.
It is too soon for the ball to be causing any symptoms. He probably needs to have his anal glands expressed and for this reason, he is rubbing his butt on the floor.
