Welcome! Thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian and I will be assisting you today. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.

1- How long has it been since she ate it?

2- How many milligrams was the hydrocholorothiazide?

3- Do you have hydrogen peroxide 3%?

Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 8 months ago.

I'll follow up for Dr. Peter for you. Taz ingested 20 mg/2.3 kg (5 lbs) of lisinopril which is equivalent to 9 mg/kg. Doses below 20 mg/kg cause mild signs only, most commonly vomiting and lethargy. Hydrochlorothiazide when acutely overdosed may cause electrolyte and water balance problems, lethargy to coma and seizures, and GI effects (hypermotility and distress). How many milloigrams of hydrochorothiazide did Taz ingest, please?
