I don't know whether or not to induce vomiting
Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 10 months ago.

Damp rid often causes irritation to the mouth and GI tract and you do NOT want to induce vomiting. If you have not observed any vomiting, you can follow these steps to minimize symptoms:

1) Rinse his mouth, face and paws well with copious amounts of water to remove any residue.
2) Allow him to drink 2 cups of milk.
3) Give 0.5mg/pound of body weight of pepcid every 12-24 hours. This is available OTC and you can buy the off brand "famotidine" if you wish to save a little money.
4) Give a bland diet for the next 5-7 days. You can use boiled chicken breast and rice or boiled chicken breast and canned pumpkin (not pie filler).

If at anytime you notice vomiting, diarrhea, ulcerations in the mouth or body, intestinal cramping, etc. he needs to see your family veterinarian.
