Dog swallowed a mini tennis ball. What do I do?

Customer Question

My 3 year old lab Jake just swallowed a mini tennis ball.

Let's see if we can induce emesis with 45 mL (3 measuring tablespoons) of 3% hydrogen peroxide dosed with a small poultry baster placed between Jake's cheek teeth and cheek. He should vomit - hopefully the mini tennis ball - within 15 minutes. If not, please repeat the same dose. What was the diameter of that ball, please?
