Hi there and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed, internship-trained veterinarian with 12 years experience in general medicine and emergency and critical care medicine and I would be happy to assist you. Please be patient as there may be slight delays in responses as I research your pet's issue and as I am typing out a response.

If they ate them within the past hour, please give them each 2 teaspoons of hydrogen peroxide orally. Wait 15mins, and if they have not vomited, give a second dose. I will wait here and then you can let me know what happens and I can tell you what to do next.

Yes, unless you would prefer that the vet do it for you.

Are you making them vomit? I can wait, I just don't want to wait here if you are not doing that.

Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Ann M., Dog Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

How many did they each eat?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Maybe two each.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Ann M., Dog Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

Okay. Give me a bit to check with a toxicologist.

With this ingestion, it looks like they are potentially over the lethal dose. I would induce vomiting right now, or if you can't, I would get them to a vet for activated charcoal and IV fluids. Based on my calculations from their weights and 2 cigarettes each, they ingested 6-13mg/kg of nicotine, and the dose that is lethal to 50% of dogs is 9mg/kg. I would get them to a vet right away. Good luck! If you induce vomiting and the cigarettes come up, then you do not need to see a vet.

I hope that I have answered your question thoroughly. If you still have questions or are not yet satisfied with my answer, please reply. If you feel that I have provided anything less than excellent service (5 star rating), please reply to me first before rating my service and let me know how I can better assist you. Thank you for your question; it has been a pleasure being able to provide assistance. Bonuses are appreciated... it's always nice to get tipped for your services. Best of luck.
