8wk old mini licked floor after I sprayed with

Customer Question
8wk old mini *****...

8wk old mini ***** ***** licked floor after I sprayed with GAMMA-CYHALOTHRIN insecticide. He has thrown up three times and I have him hydrogen peroxide to try and empty his stomach. He has no symptoms of poisoning just doesn’t act normal. Should I be worried?? He weighs about 1.5lbs

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Did you see what the dog ate?

He did not eat. Just licked the floor where I had sprayed the insecticide

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

He is 8wks old

I'm concerned that because he is so small, that vomiting might not be enough to prevent seizures and tremors. This kind of insecticide can cause high temperature elevations, which can cause clotting problems and sepsis. I would get him to the ER so they can give him activated charcoal and possibly fluids, and monitor his temperature.
