When your dog patient has ingested something potentially poisonous, the first thing you need to figure out is whether inducing emesis is an option (it’s contraindicated in some cases!). With certain substances, you only have 30 minutes to act while with others, you’re lucky enough to have a time frame of several hours. However, it really depends on the substance and the situation.

Emesis induction time frame is not the same for every toxic substance.
