Do you have a feeling for how much of the d-CON he might have ingested? It takes at least 50 grams (1.8 ounces) to seriously intoxicate a 22 lb dog. If you don't know how much was ingested, you should induce emesis with 3% hydrogen peroxide dosed at 5 mL (one measuring teaspoon) per 5 lbs of body weight by means of a small poultry baster placed between his cheek and cheek teeth. He should vomit within 15 minutes. If not, repeat the same dose. This is predicated upon him ingesting the d-CON within the hour.

He only weighs about 2lbs amd we are 1 hr feom the nearest vet and we do nit have peroxide. Is their anything else we could do?
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 10 months ago.

There's nothing else safe for you to administer to induce emesis. If you believe that he ingested enough to intoxicate himself, picking up peroxide in the market/drug store or making the hour drive would be prudent. Please continue our conversation if you wish.
