    I am with everyone else, that if he is still throwing up, can not keep anything down, take him in. However, we were taking care of a pet Golden one time, eating fine, acting fine, bowel movements fine, no throwing up, then on the third day she pooped out one of her owner's socks and a large mess of stool. The owners were not even phased, they knew that she had eaten the sock before they sent her to our house. She did it all the time supposedly without incident.

    The trouble is, you just never know. I had one throw up polyester stuffing. It could have only been eaten 2 weeks prior. But her daughter, when she ate a string rug, intestines were start to darken in about 4 hours. Luckily, they pinked right up when the rug material was removed.

    Hyg Peroxide had to use it twice on my last puppy. Wife kept leaving her socks on the floor. Thank goodness we caught it right away both times.

    I once had a friend who's dog ate a sock but they did not know it until the dog tried to push it out the other end. it started but the dog could not push it all out and then the dog coward in the corner like it was ashamed. they had to help pull the sock the rest of the way out. I would still see the vet. just to be sure.

    Be very careful "assisting" and pulling anything lodged from the dog's anus. If it is twisted, you could cause damage.

    I'm not a vet but I personally would only rely upon hydrogen peroxide if it were swallowed within the last several minutes. Not hours.

    I've used H2O2 more than once to induce vomiting. But it has been for something that was recently swallowed.
