Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. Thank you for using JustAnswer. How long ago did he eat the avacado pit and about how much does he weigh? Is he doing ok after his surgery?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Fine after surgery. He weighs 25 lbs and ate the avocado pit around 30 mins ago
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Schmidt, Dog Veterinarian replied 3 months ago

Ok, I would give him 3 tablespoons of 3% hydrogen peroxide mixed with food, milk, or yogurt to try to get him to vomit the avocado pit back up as a precaution, especially in light of the previous intestinal surgery.
