Welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian. I am 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- How long has it been since he ate it?

not sure how much he weighs but yes he's pretty big, it was milk chocolate, and it's been 15 min
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
hydrogen I have it
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Peter, Veterinarian replied 2 years ago

Let's try to induce vomiting with peroxide. This is what you can do:

To induce vomiting this is what you can do:

1- Give him 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 20 minutes.

Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Peter, Veterinarian replied 2 years ago

Give it a 3rd time. Let me know in 5-10 minutes if he vomits.

But now it's been like 30 or more min. Since she ate it, there are 2 other big dogs they may have shared it with her. The bag had 6 or 7 candies I guess missing
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Is there any reason why she hasn't thrown up
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Peter, Veterinarian replied 2 years ago

Some dogs do not vomit with peroxide and we need to use other medication. If she does not vomit after the 3rd dose I would take her to the nearest veterinarian and they can induce vomiting with a medication called apomorphine.
