I would induce vomiting with 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide orally.
The normal dose is 0.25-0.5mg/kg, and you are at about 1mg/kg.
The most common clinical signs of overdose included: lethargy (24%), tachycardia (18%), vomiting (14%) and hypotension/low blood pressure (13%). If your dog does not vomit, I would monitor for any of these symptoms (low blood pressure could look like lethargy or not being able to stand or lift the head) and see your vet if any symptoms develop.
If your dog has not vomited in 15mins, I would give a second dose of the peroxide. If your dog has not vomited at that time, just monitor for abnormal symptoms. The duration of action of this drug is about 24 hours, and the effects should taper off over time.
I hope that I have answered your question thoroughly. If you still have questions, please reply. If you feel that I have provided anything less than excellent service, please reply to me first before rating my service and let me know how I can better assist you.
