Customer Question
My 2 dogs ate...

My 2 dogs ate a whole package of Seeds of Change Quinoa and Brown Rice with Garlic. It says garlic powder on the ingredient list. When I called to ask them how much garlic powder is in there, they said it was proprietary info.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?

The whole package has 2 cups of brown rice and quinoa, I don't think there would be that much garlic powder in it, but I just got a new dog this week (about 6 months old) and he got into it while i was gone. My other dog is 9 1/2 yrs old. I don't know if both ate it or just one of them ate it.

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the dog's name?

Roady- 6 months, Stormy - 9 1/2 yrs

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Roady-?

We've only had Roady 5 days. Stormy has no medical conditions, Roady has none that I know of.

Hi. I’m Dr. Denise, a licensed veterinarian and I'd like to help. Please give me a moment while I review your concerns.

How long ago do you suspect one or both of them ate it?

How long were you away from the home?

How much do they each weigh?

about 2 hrs ago, I was gone for 3 hrs, they are about 25 and 35 lbs
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Denise, Dog Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

I recommend inducing both of them to vomit. Do you have hydrogen peroxide?

They will need about (1ml/lb) - (approximately 1 ounce, or 2 Tablespoons each) of hydrogen peroxide orally.

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

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

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