So was he acting ill before the peroxide? How long ago did you induce vomiting? Dirt is not toxic so if that is all he ate I would not induce more vomiting.

He was trying to get sick but was unable after the proxide he went in the back yard and threw up a lot came back in the house and started to heave and black stuff like dirt was coming out. My husband gave him proxide again and he is now throwing up clear liquids.
