Hello and thank you for using Just Answer today. My name is***** and I will do my best to help. I am sorry to hear Mikka got these onions. Onions can be toxic if enough are eaten for the size of the dog; please give me a moment to do some calculating.
How long now since she got them? Do you have any peroxide on hand that is not expired if we have to try to make her vomit?
So the dose of onions for a dog her size that can cause problems is about 4 to 5 teaspoons. Do you think she got that much?
If so, I would try to make her vomit. You need 3% peroxide that is not expired. If you don't have that, take her to a veterinarian and they can make her vomit.
If you do have it, then put 1 to 1.5 teaspoons of peroxide in a little milk or ice cream and get her to drink it, and then walk her for a minute. She should make her empty her stomach in a few to 20 minutes.
If it was less than 4 teaspoons she may be OK.
The sooner you make her vomit the better. I like to make a dog vomit within an hour of eating something they shouldn't.
Onions, started a few hours after they are eaten, can cause vomiting at first but then can cause serious problems with red blood cells called methemoglobinemia.
You are welcome. Please let me know if you have other questions and how Mikka is doing. You can post additional questions and updates about this by going to My Questions on the Just Answer website and I will respond the next time I am logged on. I will also be following up with you.
Thank you for using Just Answer.
Let me know if she vomits and if you see onion in the vomit.
Probably. Be sure it is not stronger than 3%
If you can take a picture of the label I can tell you for sure it is hydrogen peroxide and not something else.
But if it is peroxide for household use, it is probably hydrogen peroxide.
That is probably what they have, hydrogen peroxide.
That is what you want.
You are welcome. Let me know how it goes.
I just wanted her to walk for a minute after she got the peroxide.
I do see onions in the vomit, so that is good.
Yes it does look like there are onions in the vomit.
I would not feed her for at least an hour.
She will vomit until her stomach is empty, which is usually only about 5 minutes or so.
Hello; this is Dr. Rebecca checking in to see if you have other questions. How is Mikka?
You are welcome. I am glad you like the service.
