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.

Friend, both bleach and comet can be very irritating to the gastrointestinal tract and lead to: ***** ***** pain, vomiting, etc. Inducing vomiting is not indicated because of fear of inhaling the bleach or comet into the lungs making things worst. This is what you can do:

1- Give him some milk to dilute the bleach and comet. In addition, you can give him some bread to help bind the chemicals and pass it in the stool.

2- Do not induce vomiting.

3- Do not give things like pepto bismol.

4- Start him on Pepcid AC (famotidine) 10mg 1/4 tablet every 12 hours for the next 5-7 days. You can buy pepcid ac over the counter in any pharmacy.

5- If he becomes lethargic, anorexic, abdominal pain, difficulty breathing, etc. have him checked by a veterinarian.

Please do not forget to rate my answer - I hope you found it to be excellent. If there’s more I can do, please use the reply tab and let me know. It’s my goal to provide you with excellent service." Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon!

My wife spoke to 3 other vets and they say it's fatal and SHOULD induce vomiting is that for the money or is it really that serious?
Expert:  Dr. Peter replied 1 year ago.

Friend, I have to respectfully ***** ***** inducing vomiting with harsh chemicals. If any of these get into the lungs it could definitely be fatal. Please feel free to contact Animal Poison Control, there number is:(###) ###-#### ***** specialize with toxicity in dogs.

How would I know it would be in dire need to take him to a vet?
Expert:  Dr. Peter replied 1 year ago.

If he becomes lethargic, anorexic, abdominal pain, difficulty breathing, etc. have him checked by a veterinarian immediately. In the meantime begin to take measures to protect his gastrointestinal tract as described above.
