Have you ever had this happen? Your cute, lovable pup is suddenly acting a bit off. Does he need water? Is his new food not agreeing with his stomach? Then you spot it--the ripped-open package of chocolate bars; the ones you KNOW you placed out of his reach. You have to act fast. What do you do?
You could throw him in the car and rush to the vet, but when it comes to poisoning, seconds can make all the difference. Every minute the toxic substance is in your pet’s system his risk of dying increases substantially.
At this point, you might be asking yourself “how do I make my dog vomit?” Well, you could put your finger down his throat (we don’t recommend it--those teeth are sharp).
A much better option would be grabbing the STAT!Syringe to help your dog out immediately. It’s designed to use standard household 3% hydrogen peroxide, the kind you find in most pharmacies, to induce vomiting. This not only quickly and effectively removes most, or all, of the offending substance from your dog's stomach, but it also buys you valuable time to get him to a medical professional for further treatment.
The STAT!Syringe is easy to use. Just fill the syringe with hydrogen peroxide to the line corresponding to your dog’s weight, place the tip in his mouth angled toward the cheek, and slowly release. It’s pre-calibrated to deliver the proper dose by weight every time, so you won’t waste valuable time reading bottles or second-guessing yourself.
Always ask a vet or animal poison control before inducing vomiting. Once your dog vomits, take him to your vet or local animal emergency center for further guidance.
The STAT!Syringe was created because our own pup is constantly getting into things he shouldn’t. We wanted a safe, effective, and easy-to-use way to help save dogs that are as mischievous as ours!

- Each year countless dogs are killed by accidental ingestion of chocolate, rat poison, antifreeze, and prescription pills. If your pet gets into something poisonous, the first step is always calling your veterinarian or an animal poison control center first. You want to make sure inducing vomiting is the right thing to do; sometimes you can cause more injury or harm if you induce vomiting when it’s not appropriate.
If instructed to induce vomiting, the STAT!Syringe is designed to allow you to measure and administer the proper dose of hydrogen peroxide quickly. The STAT!Syringe has a graduated series of notches which correspond to your dog's weight. Each notch is pre-calibrated to measure the proper dose of 3% hydrogen peroxide.

How to induce vomiting in dogs:
Always contact your veterinarian or ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center at (888) 426-4435 and let them tell you how best to handle the situation. (Please note that there may be a fee for this phone call.) If you are instructed to induce vomiting, you will need the following:
-Standard 3 percent household hydrogen peroxide (do not use any other type!)
Fill the STAT!Syringe with 3% hydrogen peroxide up to the notch corresponding to your dog's weight. Place the soft tip of the syringe into the side of your dog's mouth and angle it toward the cheek. Slowly press the plunger of the syringe until the entire dose is delivered. You may repeat this dose a maximum of two times, but wait at least 15 minutes between doses. Walking your dog around may help to expedite the process.
If your dog has not vomited within 10 minutes after administering the final dose, bring your dog and whatever he ingested to the vet at once. The vet may have stronger products to induce vomiting.
It worked! Now what?
Vomiting is a quick fix and is intended to get the offending substance out of the animal's system as quickly as possible. This gives you time to get to your veterinarian; even if you successfully induced vomiting, a trip to the vet is still warranted for precautionary measures. Depending on what was ingested, activated charcoal may need to be administered by a healthcare provider to help bind any residual poison and prevent further absorption. Be sure to save the vomitus to show your veterinarian; there may be important clues regarding what your dog ingested.
When to induce vomiting?
- If you discover your dog has eaten chocolate, sugarless gum, fertilizer, alcohol, grapes, mushrooms, prescription or recreational drugs, walnuts, macadamia nuts, raisins, yeast dough, onions, or foreign objects.
- If the substance ingested was poisonous.
- When the ingestion was recent (2 hours maximum).
- If your dog is asymptomatic, meaning he’s not showing any signs of the poisoning at all.
- If your dog is healthy and isn’t at risk of inhaling the vomit into his lungs (e.g., he doesn’t have previous medical problems such as an abnormal airway or esophagus, laryngeal paralysis, or collapsing trachea). NOTE: Brachycephalic dogs with a smushed face are at more risk for inhaling vomit into the lungs. Brachycephalic breeds include the following: English Bulldogs, Pekingese, Shih-Tzus, and Pugs.
- Contact ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center at (888) 426-4435 and let them tell you how best to handle the situation. Please keep in mind that there may be a fee for the consultation.
When NOT to induce vomiting?
- DO NOT induce vomiting if the toxin is caustic like drain opener, acidic like battery acid, or a petroleum-based product. If you are unsure about the kind of toxic material that was ingested, Contact ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center at (888) 426-4435 and let them tell you how best to handle the situation. Please note that there may be a fee for this phone call.
- DO NOT induce vomiting if the animal is having difficulty breathing, having seizures/convulsions, seems depressed, or is in shock or unconscious.
- DO NOT induce vomiting if the animal's heart rate is very slow, if the object eaten was pointed or sharp, or when the poison container says not to.
- We never recommend inducing vomiting with these types of poisons: Corrosive chemicals (e.g., oven cleaners, bleach, drain cleaners, batteries, lime removal products, etc.) or hydrocarbons or petroleum distillates (e.g., kerosene, gasoline, motor oil, etc.). These oily substances are easily inhaled into the lungs, causing severe aspiration pneumonia. These chemicals can cause burning as they are swallowed and additional secondary burns as they come back up. Don't induce vomiting if your pet has swallowed a caustic substance.
- DO NOT induce vomiting if he's already throwing up; this can incite a worse vomiting response.
- DO NOT induce vomiting if your pet has lost consciousness or if she's very weak or has trouble standing. Inducing vomiting in this situation can cause aspiration pneumonia, which happens when an animal inhales vomit into its lungs and can become a secondary problem.
- DO NOT induce vomiting if it has been over two hours since your pet ingested a potential toxin. Once a substance enters your pet's small intestine, vomiting will not clear the stomach of that toxin. Inducing vomiting in a pet that has already digested a potential toxin won't be effective in ridding her body of the substance.
DO NOT induce vomiting in dogs using any of these methods:
-Physically sticking a finger down the throat
-Salt (due to side effects from causing a very elevated sodium level)
-Syrup of ipecac (due to profound side effects)
Again, always check with your veterinarian or Contact ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center at (888) 426-4435 prior to inducing vomiting. Sometimes it can cause more harm if you induce vomiting inappropriately.
Cat owners should be aware of the following: There’s nothing you, at home, can safely give to cats if they’ve eaten something poisonous. Products like salt, mustard, syrup of ipecac, and hydrogen peroxide aren’t safe to give cats. You need to seek immediate veterinary attention if your cat ate something poisonous. Your veterinarian has more effective drugs to help induce vomiting in cats.
Two more key points to remember: 1) Hydrogen peroxide will flatten as it ages, causing it to lose its effectiveness to induce vomiting. Always have an unopened bottle handy that is within the expiration date. 2) For some dogs, peroxide works within seconds of ingesting. Be sure to administer outside or in an area that is easy to clean.
DISCLAIMER: This article must not be used as a substitute for veterinary care nor should it be used as a diagnostic tool. Always consult a vet if you believe your dog has been in contact with toxins or poisons. A delay in doing so can be potentially dangerous or even fatal. Always keep the poison control phone numbers handy to reference during such emergencies.
Does STAT!Syringe expire?
The package contents and syringe in STAT!Syringe do not expire and are reusable. The syringe is not preloaded with the optional hydrogen peroxide as it has a 1-2 year shelf life.
Do you sell replacement silicone tips?
We do! Just click here.
What does ASTM d6400 biodegradable mean?
ASTM d6400 means that the plastics that make up our first kit bags are designed to biodegrade in municipals and industrial aerobic facilities. We believe in giving back to our environment and have worked hard to create biodegradable products — we want to heal never hurt.
In fact, we worked night and day to create genuine biodegradable Eco-Friendly Poop Bags that will always biodegrade, unlike others that only degrade under specific environmental conditions.
Why is the hydrogen peroxide optional?
3% Hydrogen peroxide is optional because it has a short shelf life (1-2 yrs) and can found and purchased in most grocery stores. We designed STAT! Syringe so it could hold various bottle sizes. This allows you to always keep a fresh bottle around with the syringe and kit. You’ll want to replace your hydrogen peroxide once a year.
Common Poisonous Plants
The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) released a list of the ten most common poisonous plants to animals and their possible effects. Research these plants online to familiarize yourself with what they look like. You may already have them in your home and not know it.
Depression of the central nervous system and incoordination, diarrhea, vomiting, drooling, increased heart rate, seizures and coma
(Popular landscape item)
Vomiting, diarrhea, depression, seizures, and liver failure (The seeds contain the largest amount of toxin, though all parts are poisonous.)
Severe kidney damage. *Felines in particular are at risk; they like to chew on flower bouquets that usually include lilies
Intense gastrointestinal irritation, drooling, loss of appetite, depression of the central nervous system, convulsions, and cardiac abnormalities
Vomiting, drooling, diarrhea, weakness and depression of the central nervous system. Severe poisoning can lead to coma and death from cardiovascular collapse
Gastrointestinal tract irritation, abnormal heart function, hypothermia (low body temperature), and death
Severe abdominal pain, drooling, vomiting, diarrhea, excessive thirst, weakness and loss of appetite – severe cases can result in dehydration, muscle twitching, tremors, seizures, coma, and death
Cyclamen(Houseplant given at holidays)
Gastrointestinal irritation, intense vomiting, and even death
Gastrointestinal irritation and arrhythmia
Trembling, incoordination, difficulty breathing, gastrointestinal irritation, and cardiac failure
Is it safe to induce vomiting in dogs?
In most cases, it's safe to induce vomiting in both dogs. However, there are scenarios where it is dangerous to do so. If your pet ingested something caustic or you are unaware of what they ingested immediately contact ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center at (888) 426-4435. As well, if your dog is convulsing, unconscious, has a slow heart rate, or experiencing difficulties breathing do not induce vomiting. For more scenarios when should not induce vomiting, check out “HOW TO USE”.
Is it safe to induce vomiting in cats?
This is a “yes” and “no” answer. While it is safe to induce vomiting in cats, there are no available household items — including hydrogen peroxide — to do it with. If you fear that your cat may have ingested anything dangerous, immediately call your veterinarian. They will have medications that can safely induce vomiting in cats.
How to Induce vomiting in dogs?
To induce vomiting, fill the syringe fill the syringe with 3% H2O2 solution that corresponds to your pet’s weight. Simply place the safe silicone tip in their mouth and up against the cheek and slowly press down on the plunger. Please refer to “HOW TO USE” for a detailed report on inducing vomiting in dogs.
What percentage of hydrogen peroxide should I use?
Please only use 3% hydrogen peroxide solution — optional at check out. This is the solution that is most commonly found in stores. Do not use hair coloring strength H202 or a higher percentage than 3%. This is due to the chance that your pet does not vomit up the hydrogen peroxide — higher doses than 3% may cause stomach ulcers.
Can I use syrup of ipecac or salt water instead of hydrogen peroxide?
It is NOT recommend to use either, especially the former for dogs.
Can I use the syringe to apply hydrogen peroxide to my pet’s wounds? While hydrogen peroxide was once thought to be an effective treatment for infections and wounds, this is no longer the case. Research has shown that it ends up causing more harm than good as it can damage cells that are used for healing. Hydrogen peroxide and the STAT!Syringe should only be used to induce vomiting in dogs.
My dog ate chocolate will this help them?
Yes, if Stat!Syringe is given within two hours of them shallowing chocolate this can help them vomit it up. Now, signs of chocolate poisoning will not preset them until 6-12 hours after ingesting. By this time the chocolate has made its way through the stomach and inducing will do nothing.
More importantly, while chocolate is toxic to dogs, it takes quite a bit to make them sick. A 20-pound dog would have to eat one pound of milk chocolate to make them sick. That’s around 6 candy bars. Dark chocolate and higher percentages of cocoa will be more dangerous, however. Approximately 1 ounce of milk chocolate per pound of body weight is poisonous. If your dog just ate chocolate, call your veterinarian first before inducing vomiting.
