Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. Yes, I would recommend getting him to an emergency vet tonight. Before going, though, you can try to induce vomiting by giving 1 tablespoon of 3% hydrogen peroxide orally. If he hasn't vomited in 10 minutes, you can repeat the dose once. At close to 2 hours out, it would be less likely that you will get much, if any, of the pill out, but it is worth a try. After vomiting, I would then get him to the vet to get activated charcoal, have his kidneys enzymes checked and put on intravenous fluids to help flush his system and protect his kidneys. This medication has a very narrow level of safety for dogs and can really damage the kidneys. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
