Do you have a feeling for how much of the d-CON he might have ingested? It takes at least 50 grams (1.8 ounces) to seriously intoxicate a 22 lb dog. If you don't know how much was ingested, you should induce emesis with 3% hydrogen peroxide dosed at 5 mL (one measuring teaspoon) per 5 lbs of body weight by means of a small poultry baster placed between his cheek and cheek teeth. He should vomit within 15 minutes. If not, repeat the same dose. This is predicated upon him ingesting the d-CON within the hour.

He only weighs about 2lbs amd we are 1 hr feom the nearest vet and we do nit have peroxide. Is their anything else we could do?
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 1 year ago.

There's nothing else safe for you to administer to induce emesis. If you believe that he ingested enough to intoxicate himself, picking up peroxide in the market/drug store or making the hour drive would be prudent. Please continue our conversation if you wish.
