Erik Zager, DVM, DACVECC: [Clevor] comes in little individual packets, open them right up, and then it's just a little eyedropper. And so the packets tell you exactly how many eyedrops go in, whether to split it between the 2 eyes, if the patient has 2 eyes. Emesis usually happens within about 20 to 30 minutes, you can redose it a second time if they don't vomit, but [it's] pretty quick [and] pretty efficacious and getting them to vomit. Again, [a] very, very important step in the decontamination process.
