Hi, I'm Dr. Denise, a licensed veterinarian.

YES, please induce vomiting for both dogs.

I would recommend giving them both 1 Tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide. If they do not vomit within 10min, give another dose of 1Tabletspoon.

They weigh about 5 lbs each .should I give a whole tablespoon or a teadpoon
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Denise, Dog Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

Great question! With our petite Yorkies, 1 teaspoon (5ml) would be appropriate. Repeating once after 10min if needed.

They are napping not vomiting after dose
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Denise, Dog Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

Walk them around on a leash, and pause occasionally to rub their bellies, lift them up/tilting forward (like a wheelbarrow) to mix up the peroxide in their stomach and encourage vomiting.

Ok
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Denise, Dog Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

Oh, they are adorable!

Great idea to put them in the bathtub. Now give them a good belly rub each and if no vomiting, give the second dose.

The concern with corn cobs (especially in pups as small as they are) is obstruction. If the pieces were big enough to swallow, but not big enough to pass through their (pencil sized) intestines, they can get stuck.

Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Denise, Dog Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

Any vomiting yet?

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Denise, Dog Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

I hope your little ones have both vomited up the pieces of corn cobs by now.

I'm going to be logging off for the evening. I would encourage you to watch them for signs of obstruction over the next 2-3 days - vomiting, decreased appetite, diarrhea, decreased stool formation, lethargy, painful abdomens.

I wish you all the best and I hope they do well.

Neither dog has vomited. They ran around very energetically now are lying down quietly. Should I squirt water down their throats. Might the corn cob pieces absorbe water and make it worse We found about 1/4:of a cup of corn cob pieces all sizes so I have no idea how much each one got. The female was chomping on a hard piece bout an inch square when I noticed them
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Denise, Dog Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

Have you given them each 2 doses of peroxide?

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Denise, Dog Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

Ok, they are unfortunately in the 10% of dogs who will not vomit after 2 doses of hydrogen peroxide.

At this point, you have a choice to make

1. You can go the aggressive route and take them to the emergency veterinarian for medication to cause them to vomit. To this point, stomach emptying time (into the intestines) is typically 2 hours for most dogs. By my math, they chewed on/ate the corn cobs about 1hr45min ago.

2. Or, you can go the more conservative route, and feed them a bulky meal (bread, rice) to encourage anything foreign to pass, and monitor them for GI signs.

They eat kibble but also get rice with chicken and vegetables. So I will see if they will eat that now.
