Hi. I’m Dr. Denise, a licensed veterinarian. I’d like to help with your concerns regarding Molly.

How long ago did she eat the chocolate?

Do you have hydrogen peroxide? I'm going to recommend that you induce her to vomit.

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

She will need about 45ml (3 tablespoons) of hydrogen peroxide orally. You can either pour this into her mouth from a shot glass or turkey baster, or soak it in bread and have her eat the saturated bread.

Then walk her inside on a leash with a garbage bag to catch her vomit.

If she does not vomit within 10-15 min of the hydrogen peroxide, she can have a second dose.

It is important that she vomit to the point of dry heaving, to know that her stomach is empty.

At the dose she received, she may develop dangerously fast heart rhythms, vomiting and diarrhea.

Any success to induce her to vomit?
