I see that Dino ate a quarter and given his size that is a bit concerning for obstruction!
Dr. Porter is typing.....
He is small and this quarter might have difficulty passing. If it gets stuck in the intestine you are looking at surgery to save his life. My BEST recommendations given all the circumstances is to go to the emergency vet where they might do the following:
Find a Vet/E-Vet: Veterinarians have been very busy lately (shortage) and folks are having a difficult time getting seen quickly. You may be seen quicker at an emergency clinic but with a wait time and more expense, of course. If you need help locating vets or E-clinics you can use the following link to search up to a 50 mile radius https://www.vetlocator.com/hotline.php
If you absolutely cannot go to the vet then your options are to:
To Make Vomit: Dog owners have found this helpful when they need to induce vomiting for something their dog ate. You should always consult with a veterinarian prior to inducing vomiting as it may not be wise to do with sharp objects, hydrocarbons, or caustic substances.
Hydrogen peroxide should be active and not expired. Pour a little into sink drain to make sure it bubbles. If is does, it is active. The use of a turkey baster or shot glass is helpful to deliver slowly in the corner of your dog’s mouth and give them time to swallow.
Give 2 tsp 3% hydrogen peroxide by mouth all at once slowly (do not dilute). This should cause vomiting in 8-12 minutes. If your dog does not vomit in 15 minutes you can repeat this ONCE. I will keep typing while you do this….
Here is a resource about how to induce vomiting in dogs using hydrogen peroxide along with dosing amounts based on weight. It is alway wise to consult a vet before doing this as there are times when you do not want to induce vomiting as with something sharp, caustic, or a hydrocarbon.
Signs of Obstruction:
Please let me know if you have any questions, hope you found this helpful, and that this can be resolved quickly for Dino!
That is a good plan and I hope this has a fairly easy solution for you!
I had a ruby CKCS named Tico and everything went in his mouth especially acorns!
Not likely ; )
