Hi I am Dr. Denney. I am currently reviewing your post now. Please give me a few minutes to type my response. Thank you for trusting us with your question. This service is used for general information only and is no substitute for a veterinarian patient relationship by examination.

The ingestion of the medication may have occurred after he saw his regular veterinarian earlier today correct?

And he saw your regular veterinarian for vomiting ?

Did they Axle a medication injection of Cerenia ? That is a powerful anti nausea so we may not be able to induce vomiting if so.

Expert:  Dr. Meghan Denney replied 2 months ago.

Can you tell me the dosage he may have ingested?

Expert:  Dr. Meghan Denney replied 2 months ago.

This medication is also not really used in animals so there is not much on what side effects we can see but from my research we may see low blood pressure, arrhythmias and collapse. There are no doses published for animals so I may need to recommend that you call animal poison control and speak to a toxicologist so we can find out exactly what we may see.

Kansas State University Veterinary Teaching Hospital offers a free 24-hour poison control hotline that is available to all pet owners in North America. Their number is *****

If that one Is no longer is use we will need to call this one

Did your veterinarian give cerenia for nausea to Axle? We have a limited window of 30-45 min to induce vomiting since ingestion but the hydrogen peroxide not work (because of the cerenia) and may make his stomach issues worse because of the acidic nature.

Expert:  Dr. Meghan Denney replied 2 months ago.

Without more information here I need to recommend calling poison control and finding out what symptoms we could see and I am also going to recommend that you call your regular veterinarian after speaking with poison control in cause we need treatment for Axle.

Expert:  Dr. Meghan Denney replied 2 months ago.

Good luck with Axle. Please follow the recommendations and call poison control so we can be prepared for any symptoms

the Vet gave him Metoclopramide
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
he ate the medicine yesterday, not today can we give peroxide ?
Expert:  Dr. Meghan Denney replied 2 months ago.

I am sorry I was at work and no you cannot induce vomiting now. like I posted above your window of inducing vomiting is only 30-45 minutes after the ingestion.

Expert:  Dr. Meghan Denney replied 2 months ago.

His symptoms of vomiting today may be related to the ingestion. I would recommend asking your veterinarian tomorrow for a medication called cerenia for the nausea.

Expert:  Dr. Meghan Denney replied 2 months ago.
