Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years.

Do you have 3% Hydrogen peroxide in the huse?

Weight of the dog?

He will need to go into the ER Vet for induction of vomiting. If you had Peroxide we could do this at home but we only have a small window of time. The medication needs to come out and a charcoal lavage to make sure to bind any residual toxins. If you need an ER Vet please supply a city and a Zip code and I can locate some for you.
