Customer Question
Hello, my 6 month...

Hello, my 6 month old puppy MAY have ingested some ant killer(Im not 100% sure). I gave him lots of water and about 30 minutes later he vomited quite a bit. I gave him hydrogen peroxide to try to induce vomiting again however he is laying around now and gagging here and there.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the puppy?

No that's it this is our first accident situation

But before I can start I need a little more information to make things clearer to me, so could you please confirm the following :

1. What was the brand name of the ant killer?

2. How much does your dog weigh { In pounds }?
