Negative. It can take up to 4 hours for the stomach to normally clear out. A large object may take longer. I would still make the dog vomit in that 4 hour window

The stupid vet told me to not use hydrogen peroxide because it probably wouldn't work on a dog his size and is have to use ALOT of it and that salt would work much better. So p*ssed of at vets not knowing anything. You can't trust them with anything, they'll psuedoswearing see board rules and then blame everything but themselves.

Really, that much? I guess it doesn't matter since they're going to just throw it up anyways.

I always gave a tablespoon and waited. After 10 minutes, I'd give another tablespoon if the dog didn't throw up by then. That's typically been plenty in my experience. Haven't had to do it many times, but it's always worked.

My partner doesn't want me to give him peroxide he's afraid it will react with all the salt I gave him and hurt him more.

What's his veterinary background to come up with that conclusion?

If you're really worried about it, get him to a 24 hour emergency vet and have a professional see him. That's probably your safest option.

At this point I'd much rather trust my partners opinion than that of the vet who told me to give him salt in the first place. I am going to stay up with him tonight to make sure he is ok and to look for any signs, as well as looking up online right now for mixing salt and peroxide together. And waiting to hear what people say on here and going to call 24 hour vet right now.
