Kobi, you probably mean hydrogen peroxide. It is often used to make dogs vomit.
By the way, rat poison is a chemical called warfarin. It makes the blood very thin so that it can't clot. An animal usually dies from rat poison because it bleeds to death internally. So even if your dog is not showing external signs, it could still be bleeding to death inside. The treatment for warfarin poisoning can include vomiting, but often includes administration of a medicine that makes the blood thicker so that the internal bleeding stops. Only a vet can administer this lifesaving medication. So if you ever suspect that your dog ate rat poison, you should bring it to the vet IMMEDIATELY! Also please remember that this is a public forum. We are not vets. If you need emergency health advice, you should either call your vet or your local emergency after hours vet. Don't waste precious time online!

Bring your dog to the vet immediately! It depends on how much he ate and how much your dog weighs, but the vet may want to pump his stomach. Please, please bring your dog to the vet!!

Yes, go to the vet IMMEDIATELY! Even if your pup is not showing signs of illness he is still at risk of death. Rat poison is a slow killer. If you don't treat him immediately your chances of losing him are high. Sorry to be so grim but unfortunately this is true! Good luck.

Rush your dog to the vet immediately! Take as much evidence as possible to your vet, it's vomit - if it did vomit - and the rat poisoning. The vet will probably make your dog throw up, but as your puppy is only small, it may be a lot for him. Hope all goes well.
