I would suggest inducing vomiting. You can do this by giving 1 teaspoon of 3 % Hydrogen Peroxide per 10lbs of body weight. That would be 10 teaspoons for your dog. After you get him to vomit I would get him to a vet immediately. If you are within 10 minutes of an emergency hospital I would just go right now and let them induce vomiting at the ER. It is very important that you get your dog to an ER ASAP.

I hope this helps. DRB

Please give me a positive rating as that is the only way I am compensated. A positive rating will not close this question and I am more than happy to answer any follow up questions that you have.

Please remember my answers do not replace or supersede the advice of your veterinarian as my answers do not create a valid client patient relationship as I am unable to examine your pet. Thank you very much! DrB
