It sounds like that might be the reason she didn't vomit.Hydrogen peroxide is H2O2. Essentially, H2O (water) and Oxygen (O). Once opened, the H2O2 breaks apart into H2O and O. So, you've given her the equivalent of water. It's not unexpected for her not to vomit for that reason.That said, you have about 2 hours from ingestion to induce vomiting. Take that time to get a fresh bottle of peroxide and induce the vomiting again using these instructions: http://www.sunrisepetclinicaz.com/vomiting.htmlShe should vomit in a few minutes. If she does not, you'll need to take her to the ER. Raw onion is a much bigger deal than cooked onion. Immune hemolytic anemia is what we fear for dogs who eat raw onion.
