I see. I apologize, I am currently not available for a phone call at this time. We can continue this conversation or I can opt out to let another expert continue with you. Has your dog had any vomiting or GI upset yet today?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
We willuse this method.
No vomiting, he is resting no symptoms, sould we give water?
Expert:  Dr. G. replied 1 year ago.
The best option is probably to induce vomiting. This is a product that can some toxicity when ingested in fair amounts. You can induce vomiting with hydrogen peroxide, using 1 tablespoon per 10 pounds of body weight.
Expert:  Dr. G. replied 1 year ago.
If your dog doesn't vomit after 10 minutes, you can give another dose of peroxide. If there is still no vomiting after 20 minutes you can try to dilute everything out giving a large amount of water or milk

Straight hydrogen peroxide?
Expert:  Dr. G. replied 1 year ago.
Yes. the 3% hydrogen peroxide available over the counter for first aid
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
We have some, will we be ok after the vomiting?
Expert:  Dr. G. replied 1 year ago.
He should be fine after vomiting. This product has a relatively low amount of toxicity and if vomiting is induced it is unlikely he will have any major problem except for some short term upset stomach.
