We no longer use salt for inducing vomiting because of the Danger it imposes. We now use 3% Hydrogen Peroxide at 1 teaspoon full per 10 pounds of body weight. It is much safer. I am concerned with your dag having Salt toxicity because of the weakness and muscles tremors. These are the signs:





Walking drunk

Excessive thirst or urination



With her small size I have to recommend having her seen in the ER ASap, for possible salt toxicity.

Theres nothing else that can be given to her?
Expert:  Joan replied 4 months ago.

No she needs to be seen for supportive care if it is indeed Salt toxicity. If this is salt toxicity it can lead to coma and death.
