Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Do you know how much your dog weighs?How long ago did she eat the Metoformin?Do you have any peroxide in the house?
Thanks for answering my question.
As a general rule, Metformin (also known as Glucophage) does not work very well to lower blood sugar in dogs, however, giving her the peroxide to induce vomiting won't hurt.
Start with 2cc of peroxide or 1 tablespoon. If vomiting does not happen within the next ten minutes, give another dose. Again, if no vomiting within 10 minutes, give a third dose. When she starts vomiting, everything in her stomach will come up. She will continue to vomit until her stomach is completely empty. So be ready for lots of vomit.
Once you've gotten her to vomit, just to be safe, I would watch for any signs of weakness, tremors, shaking, and if you notice anything unusual with her, I'd have her seen by an emergency vet...just to be on the safe side.
I hope this helps.
