Welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian. I am currently not set up to make a live call. But, I am happy to answer your question on this thread. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.

1- Do you have hydrogen peroxide 3%?

2- How long has it been since he ate it?

3- How much of the tablet did he ingest?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have. Hydrogen peroxide. 30min since he ate it. Don't know exactly how much he ate
Expert:  Dr. Peter replied 1 year ago.

Let's move quickly and try to induce vomiting.

1- Give her 1 tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide orally to induce vomiting.

2- Allow him to walk for a minute and move his belly to mix stomach content with peroxide. If he does not vomit within 5-10 minutes, repeat it again. Can give a total of 3 times 5-10 minutes apart.

3- Please let me know if he vomits, I will be on stand bye for the next 20 minutes.
