People on here always seem to have stuff on hand to make a dog throw up. What is it? Where do you get it from? I live in Australia and I have never heard of it or maybe it is called something different. Does anyone know of a good doggie first-aid book I can use as a reference book in case things happen like poisoning, insect bites etc etc? Thanks
Maybe this will help: To induce vomiting: Give full strength (3%) hydrogen peroxide by mouth at a dosage of 1 tablespoon per 15 to 20 pounds of body weight, or syrup of ipecac (follow label directions) If the pet is going to be transported to a veterinary facility, search for containers of the poison to take with the animal. Transport the pet immediately: don't wait until vomiting commences (if you induced vomiting). Cleaning out your car is a small price to pay for a successful outcome in a serious poisoning case. If you have any doubts as to whether a substance is poisonous, call a veterinarian or a poison control center.
I think she's just trying to figure out from hectorluvers post earlier what hydrogen peroxide is called over there. Just in case. At least that's the impression I have. You can ask Jan. She's in Singapore and that's not far from you. Maybe she would know if it's called something different.
Good point, paigebeverly--salt works immediately, much faster than ipecac. ltlgto--if the salt from a potato chip could make a 5 pound dog throw up, teaching the dog not to beg at the dinner table would be really easy. :)
So you just pour the required amount of table salt down their throat and they should throw up? That seems easy. KatzPomDogz, did you think I might just try to make my dog throw up tonight for a trial run in case he ever swallows anything..... I just want to know what to do....we are about to put out rat sack around our house and if my Floyd got into some, I really wouldn't know what to use to make him throw up. Thanks everyone.
