We're not sure. We had some air conditioning repairmen that came into our house and let him out of the area that we typically keep him. He was outside for a while and was covered in grass when we came home, but after a while that we were looking around we saw that there was a bucket with some fabuloso in it by the sink and we figured he may have ingested some of that. There are no frogs in the back yard during the day and the grass had just been cut.
ok, we were thinking of making him vomit using hydrogen peroxide but do you think it will have an effect? -- thats what people online say--We came back from work at around 6 so you get an idea of the timing. and we gave him 1/4 of a liter of pedia lite would that be enough?
Hydrogen peroxide is usually pretty effective in making dogs vomit, but since it's been a couple hours or more since the product would have been ingested, making him vomit would not likely help. Plus, it's typically not recommended to induce vomiting after cleaners are ingested, since they can irritate the esophagus and throat coming back up.
The amount of pedialyte should be a decent amount to dilute any of the product ingested.
I hope this is helpful.
what would be symptoms of him ingesting it in large quantities?
but is it deadly? he seems weak in the way that when he stands or sits for a long period of time he starts sliding or leaning to one side.
but he can run fine. He lays down but doesnt fall asleep. Is this something to be alarmed about or do you think i should give him more pedialite?
Ok, we will watch him, thanks for your help.
Thank you for the follow-up. Shortly after giving Oreo more Pedialyte and letting him rest, you would be happy to know he got up himself with bursts of his normal energy again. We're very happy to see him roaming around and showing vital signs again.
Thank you for your help.
My follow-up question would be how to prevent this from happening? He normally would have never reached to drink liquids from buckets unless he's hungry. We are trying to keep him from having to potty sporadically, so we are controlling when he eats and have noticed he is scavenging for food now that is not available to him all the time.
