Vomiting is not uncommon after the ingestion of windex, which tends to be relatively non-toxic to pets because of its dilute form. If you continue to see vomiting, there are some steps you can take:
The first thing is to administer a dose of regular pepcid (famotidine) every 12-24 hours. You will want to give 0.5mg/pound of body weight (a 10# ***** would receive 5mg, a 5# ***** would receive 2.5mg, etc). For this, you can buy the brand name Pepcid, or you can use the cheaper, off-brand “famotidine” that’s available. Either will be useful.
2 hours following a dose of famotidine, the time needed for the medication to begin working, you can offer a bland diet. To make this, you’ll combine white or brown rice, boneless, skinless chicken breast and sufficient water for cooking in a stock pot. Boil on medium until it turns to mush and the breast is easily flaked. To avoid more nausea, start with small amounts to begin with and offer the amount every 2-4 hours. A few teaspoons to start is typically sufficient and you can work your way up every 2-4 hours in incremental increases until you’re sure no vomiting will be seen.
If the vomiting does persist through being given famotidine, it would be best to enlist your vet's help with an exam and injectable medications that will stop the vomiting. The diet above will also be useful in helping your companion to pass the paper towels that were chewed up, which can sometimes block the intestines. After 3-5 days, you can then switch back to regular dog food.
