Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years. I would love to assist you.

We can try and induce vomiting to get it up. Please feed a piece of bread followed by one teaspoon full of 3% Hydrogen peroxide per 10 pounds of body weight to the back of the throat. Jostle the stomach and Jogs the dog around. This should work within 10-15 mins. If it does not try one additional time. If it does not come up, then tomorrow he will need to be checked by a Vet. Hopefully we can get it up if it has been less than 2 hour window.
