How to make a dog throw up the safe way: You will need fresh 3% hydrogen peroxide. Once peroxide has been opened it begins to lose effectiveness. If you are unsure if the peroxide is good or not pour a little on your hand or in the sink, if you see it bubbling it’s fine but if you do not see bubbling go get a new bottle.
For every 10 pounds that your dog weighs, you will give 1 teaspoon (5 ml) of peroxide. You can either syringe it in his mouth carefully or you can mix it with a small amount of liquid, like milk, or a small amount of food, like bread. Get your dog to move around a little, nothing to active, maybe a slow walk. I advise taking your dog outside and staying out there with him until about 15 minutes after the last time he threw up. It can take up to 20 minutes for the peroxide to make your dog throw up. If after 20 minutes your dog has not thrown up, it is safe to administer another dosage of peroxide. You can give a total of 3 doses of peroxide to make your dog throw up. If he hasn’t thrown up by then call your vet and see what he would like you to do.
That’s it. Those are the simple steps to how to make a dog throw up.
