Friend, repeat the peroxide. This time give him 1 tablespoon and allow him to walk for a minute or so; move his belly to mix stomach content with peroxide. Please let me know if he vomits. I will be on stand bye for the next***** Peter

no vomiting yet
Expert:  Dr. Peter replied 2 years ago.
Friend, if he is not vomiting with the second dose of peroxide very likely he will not vomit with peroxide. Next step is taking him quickly to nearest veterinarian and they can induce vomiting with a medication called apomorphine. Need to move quickly before the bread (raisins) move out of the stomach into the intestinal tract.
