How to make a cat vomit

On the post about Melly eating the button, Connie from Tails from the Foster Kittens commented that you can use peroxide and a syringe to make a cat vomit.  I emailed her and asked for more info, since it sounded like potentially useful information.


Here is her reply:


Hi Natalie,

I've used it once when I thought Jack ate an acetaminophen tablet.  When I worked as a receptionist at a vet I saw the vets do it often and gave him 1cc of peroxide every few minutes in a needless syringe till he hurled.  It was horrible waiting.  fortunately it was a hidden piece of kibble and not the tablet I dropped.

Like the page says, and like you need to be in kids, you need to be cautious when you give it.  You want to make sure it isn't something that is going to be doing more damage coming out (like caustic stuff).

Feel free to share.. it is a good piece of information to have.

We would never have thought of that! Thanks for the info but hopefully we'll never need it!

Wow, good luck in making Melly puke. 9, Chani and Sheamus seem to have no issues puking all over the condo... especially on the carpet
