Inducing vomiting at home


Always check with your veterinarian or an animal poison control expert before inducing vomiting. Depending on what your dog consumed, the quantity and how much time has passed, it might not be the right option.

You will need a solution of 3% hydrogen peroxide (available over-the-counter) and a dosing syringe (or turkey baster).

For dogs, you should use 1 milliliter per pound of bodyweight, but never give any dog more than a 45 milliliters dose.

If you’re using measuring cups in your kitchen, remember that 1 teaspoon = 5 milliliters, and 1 tablespoon = 15 milliliters.

Following this recipe, a 15-pound dog would get 15 milliliters (or 3 teaspoons) of the solution of 3% hydrogen peroxide, and a 100-pound dog would get no more than 45 milliliters (or 3 tablespoons).

If your dog does not vomit within 10 minutes, you may repeat the dose one more time. If the second time doesn’t succeed, take your dog to a veterinarian or veterinary hospital immediately.If for some reason you cannot reach a veterinary professional, or you can call the ASPCA 24/7 Poison Control Hotline at 888-426-4435 or the Pet Poison Helpline at 855-764-7661. There are fees for the services, but it’s well worth it.
