Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!Unfortunately this is a possible foreign body situation so it would be best to induce vomiting. If your dog ingested this within the last few hours then you can induce vomiting with 3% hydrogen peroxide 1 tsp per ten pounds then walk around to mix it in the stomach and agitate the lining. If no vomiting within 10-15 minutes it can be repeated once only in hopes of inducing vomiting.Hopefully he will bring up the bottle cap but if he doesn't then I would advise a veterinary er exam to give stronger medications to bring it up and reduce risk of an obstruction and surgeryPlease let me know how else I can assist you both today
