I'm not a vet or a tech but recently gave my 50lb 10 month old puppy a LOT of hydrogen peroxide. My sister was making bread from scratch and he ate a a ton of unrisen dough. We caught him in the act so he was immediately getting HP. He must have an iron gut because it seemed to take a lot before he barfed, though maybe a lot of it was running out of the side of his mouth. It took almost 45 minutes of giving him several tablespoons at a time and then walking him around. He definitely needed it though, we could see his gut expanding with the dough and at one point he was whining when my sister touched his stomach. Then out of nowhere he threw up twice in a row and that was it, the entire clump of dough was out and after a drink, he was happy as a clam.

You don't want to give a LOT. there's the possibility they won't vomit and it can cause gastric ulcers. But a cup for a large dog is ok.

I've had poor luck giving smaller amounts. I feel like I need to repeat doses more often than not. So for my own large dogs I go straight for half a cup

I keep waiting for him to throw up but it's been just over an hour and it's about our bedtime so he's tired and laying down right now. Should I get him up and walking around?

Yes. They do.

I would at least call the vet again. did you give the peroxide like Anubis, the ER vet tech, said to?

Take him to the E vet. They will give him a shot to induce vomiting.

yeah that stuff will absorb the peroxide so may be pointless
those things blow up like nobodys business when they get wet
i have seen kids at the beach with em on

your dog may be at risk for bloat btw with that stuff in his gut

Didn't know Anubis was a vet tech. Sorry Anubis. I already called 24 hour vet and just got off the phone with them. She told me to give the peroxide, which I did and to wait to see if he throws up. She said the salt will be fine and agreed it's ok to use in an emergency. He ate about half the diaper but it was ripped open so a lot of it was over the floor. She said he probably didn't eat as much as I think he did and if he does not throw up than to just watch him really close for the next few days until it passes. And if we see him not eating, drinking, pooping, peeing or being him happy self then we are to take him in right away. But she doubts it will cause bloat and feels that it will pass and he will be ok.

"My dog ingested a disposable diaper": Pet Health Community - Support Group
yah i just looked that up!

Update. I took her to the emergency vet last night. Lucky for me he is right across the street. Her fever was well over 104. He gave her Barium for X-rays. It was in her stomach and intestines. She was extremely dehydrated because the material in the diaper was soaking up all her moisture. He kept her for 24 hours. She is home now, but I don't think she would have lived thru the night if I hadn't taken her. $1000.00 later, my fur kid is still with us. What an expensive lesson. Don't leave diapers in the house! Ever!
