How long ago did Bella eat the zoloft? How much peroxide did you give her?
Ate Zoloft about 45 minutes ago - gave 1 tablespoon 10 minutes ago. She did not vomit.
At her size, 200 mg of zoloft is a pretty serious overdose. Clinical signs can include: vomiting, diarrhea, excessive salivation, and lethargy. Serotonin syndrome may occur with signs that include muscle tremors, rigidity, agitation, increased body temperature, vocalization, hypertension or hypotension, tachycardia, seizures, coma, and death.
What if she doesn't vomit!
I would give her another tablespoon of peroxide and wait 15 more minutes. OR I would take her to your regular veterinarian now.
ok - on the way to the vet.
Here is little more info they might appreciate: Treatment of suspected SSRI intoxication involves gastric decontamination and symptomatic treatment of other clinical signs if they occur. Seizures can be treated with intravenous diazepam (0.5–1 mg/kg IV). Tachyarrhythmias can also be treated according to type. Methocarbamol (55–220 mg/kg IV to effect, not to exceed 330 mg/kg/day), a skeletal muscle relaxant, can be used to control muscle tremors. Cyproheptadine (1 mg/kg), a serotonin antagonist, can be dissolved in water and administered per rectum. Any animal that has ingested an SSRI should be promptly treated and carefully observed for at least 72 hours for side effects.
