If there's any chance of Hippie ingesting ethylene glycol-containing antifreeze, please induce emesis with 3% hydrogen peroxide dosed at 5 mL (one measuring teaspoon) per 5 lbs of body weight with a large eyedropper or small poultry baster placed between his cheek teeth and cheek. He should vomit within 15 minutes. If not, repeat the same dose. Keep me posted, please.
