I would like you to feed your baby a small piece of bread. Once this is done please take about 2oz of the 3% Hydrogen Peroxide and get it down to the back of the tongue. Once this is done. Jostle the stomach to make it agitated. This should cause vomiting within 10-15 mins. If this does not work it can be repeated in 15 mins. Once the dog vomits it should be collected and take along with the Rat poison and dog to the ER Vet. They will need to do supportive care which in most cases a charcoal lavage and start the dog on a Vitamin K pill as well as give an injection of Vitamin K. I will stand by and can help locate an ER Vet for you with city, state and zip code. Joan


I need a zip code for your area please.
