How to induce vomiting

My dog ate something naughty. Now what? Please only induce vomiting under the advice of a veterinarian. Some substances can cause even more damage if they are vomited back up. If the veterinarian has given you the OK to induce vomiting, here are the tools and steps you need to accomplish this. 

Large oral dosing syringe or turkey baster.

3% hydrogen peroxide solution

Measuring spoons


Administer the proper amount: the suggested dosage is

1 teaspoon per 5 pounds of the dog’s body weight by mouth, with a maximum dose of 3 tablespoons for dogs who weigh more than 45 pounds.

But ask your veterinarian about the best dosage for your dog and only induce vomiting if your dog ate the substance within 2 hours.
