she ate it about 10 minutes ago and i do have hydrogen peroxide. I do not know how much she ate becasue she was chewing on it and ran under the bed she may not have swallowed much of it
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Peter, Veterinarian replied 8 years ago
It will not hurt to make her vomit, give her 3 teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide orally, move her belly and allow her to walk for 1 minute. If in 5 minutes she does not vomit repeat it again, do not give a third time if she does not vomit after 2nd dose. Let me know what happens.

She has thrown up one complete (large) petal and pieces of another.
1. How do we know that she has thrown it all up?
2. What care will she need in the next hours/night?
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Peter, Veterinarian replied 8 years ago

To know if she has thrown it all up you can take her to ER vet and they can do a barium swallow and determine if she has any more in her stomach or small intestine. Hydrogen peroxide usually works very well emptying the stomach though, I doubt she would have anything left in her stomach.

Observe her, if she becomes lethargic, diarrhea, or just not doing right; than have her checked by ER vet, otherwise, feed her a bland diet tonight of rice and boneless chicken.

She has gotten to the point of "dry heaves" so I hope we got it all. I'm glad we saw her ingest it and could act quickly. We will watch her carefully.
Thank you very, very much!
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Peter, Veterinarian replied 8 years ago

Dry heaves are common after vomiting, she will be ok.

 

Your Welcome.
