Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
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?
1- Is she showing any symptoms?
2- Do you have hydrogen peroxide 3%?
Let's try to induce vomiting with peroxide. This is what you can do:
1- Give her 1 teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide orally to induce vomiting.2- Allow her to walk for a minute and move her belly to mix stomach content with peroxide. If she does not vomit within 5-10 minutes, repeat it again. Can give a total of 3 times 5-10 minutes apart.
3- Please let me know if she vomits, I will be on stand bye for the next 20 minutes.
Friend, the normal therapeutic dose for benadryl is between 2-4 mg/kg. Your dog based on weight took a dose of 6.25mg/kg; I don't think it will be fatal. But, she may experience significant sedation that may require supportive care by a veterinarian. For this reason it is best to err on the side of caution and try to induce vomiting. Ideally we need to induce vomiting within 1-2 hours, if you wait too long there will be no benefit inducing vomiting.
