    Puppy Help

    Advertisements
    My shepard puppy just ate a carton of cigarettes. Well she didn't eat them all, she destroyed most of them, but she did eat quite a few. Do you think I should take her to the vet, she's not throwing up or anything, but she is VERY hyper. I feel like I should do something but I don't know what.

    hmm... i'd say to call the vet first and just see if it's something that they want to check out? Poor puppy! They are so cute, but they can't keep their teeth off anything!

    You need to call your vet ASAP - a 10 pound dog only needs to eat 2-4 cigarettes to ingest enough nicotine to be toxic. Even if the pupster was only chewing on them vs. swallowing, the nicotine was ingested.

    They will probably make him throw up.

    I hope your puppy will be ok!

    Call an emergency vet, ASAP.

    You might be able to induce vomiting using hydrogen peroxide, but consult a vet first.

    Please update as soon as you can, OP - hopefully your lack of further posting means you are at the vet with your pup!

    My dog ate a pound of fudge, and they had us incude vomiting. We poured hydrogen peroxide down his throat one capful at a time, until he vomited clear.
