Hello again,

I have worked out an answer for you below.

1. Good news ! This product just contains calcium carbonate which is non toxic to dogs in small amounts like this, Max should be just fine. There are no special measures you need take other than just keeping an eye on him.

2. But in any case I should be available online for you the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me in the unlikely event that Max's condition changes in any way or you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,

Dr Scott

Thank you
I gave him 2 tsp peroxide earlier, I hope that was fine, he has not vomited so far. But the way I understand you he should be fine.

Hydrogen peroxide is very safe for dogs even if they do not then vomit, but even if you do not manage to induce vomiting the chances are that Max will be just fine.

Regards,

Dr Scott
