Hydrogen Peroxide for the Induction of Emesis

CE Event Information

  • Description:
    Induction of emesis is generally indicated after a pet consumes something that is potentially toxic. The oral administration of hydrogen peroxide has been commonly recommended and regarded as safe practice.

    In this Specialty Update we report on the findings of a clinical study that examined the efficacy in inducing emesis, as well as the effects on the proximal GI tract - of both hydrogen peroxide and apomorphine - in healthy dogs. Discussion includes the Specialist's Spin and considerations regarding this practice.
