How to Make a Dog Throw Up

Updated on July 4, 2013

Dogs are very curious

Every dog owner should be aware of the fact that their dog can sometimes eat something it shouldn't. Dogs are very curious creatures but unfortunately they don't know many things they try to eat, can seriously hurt them.

In some cases an accident like that could even cause your dog to die. That is why you should find out how to make your dog keep throwing up until the dangerous object that was swallowed is out.

You might be asking yourself, why on earth would I ever need any of these information, my dog never eats anything but what I prepare. But in the case it does happen, you will be more than happy to know how to react.

Hydrogen peroxide works best

Remember, making my dog throwing up is just a first aid. When you have determined, that your dog has been poisoned or has eaten something else that is very dangerous, you should call your veterinarian as soon as possible.

If your veterinarian is not available at that precise moment, you need to try and reach a veterinarian emergency clinic. Before making your dog throwing up yellow, take their personal advice.

The best way to do the job is to use hydrogen peroxide. You will only need one cap of a regular sized bottle of it. That is about the same amount as a teaspoon full. If your dog is very large, double the dose. You can use a filled syringe to get the liquid down your dogs throat.

Regular household salt is an alternative

Before you start with the procedure, try to get your dog in a secure area. The best option would be a bathroom or at least some place that will be easy to clean up afterwards.

Dogs throwing up can make a huge mess, so if you have the chance ask some one to help you with the job. Unless you are a owner of a very small dog, this will be almost impossible to accomplish without an extra pair of hands.

After you have administered the hydrogen peroxide, wait a few moments for your dog to start throwing up. It can be a matter of seconds or you will might have to wait a few minutes.

When it is done, look for any foreign objects that your dog might have swallowed. It might be nothing obvious there if you are trying to help your dog eliminate some kind of poison.

If you don't have access to hydrogen peroxide, for example you are somewhere on vacation, far away from a clinic, you could also use some regular household salt.

I hope you never have to find out, why do dogs throw up.
