Hi, JaCustomer. It looks like there may have been a problem with the transmission of your original post. Can you confirm what is going on with your dog? Did your husband give too much horse dewormer to the dog? If this is the case, I need to know when it was given and what was given.

Yes .. 38 minutes ago .. It's called zimecterin.. 0.26 ounce

I've offered a phone call in case it's easier for you.
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
There are 30 notches he took the entire thing enough to deworm 1250 pound of horse
Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 8 months ago.
He's going to have to have vomiting induced. This could be a lethal amount. One moment while I get some instructions together for you.
Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 8 months ago.
While you work on these instructions, I'm going to get more information together for you guys. He needs to immediately be made to vomit. If you do not have a bottle of fresh hydrogen peroxide in your home, go buy one now or drive immediately to your local ER to have vomiting induce. Instructions:
Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 8 months ago.
Chances are high that you guys are going to wind up in the ER this evening and that's precisely where you need to be, especially with an ingestion of this size.Typical symptoms to see are: walking as though drunk, dilated pupils, blindness, tremors, vomiting, seizures and death.The horse dewormers are not safe in any dose for dogs. Although they are used by some, the risk of a toxicity is very high (especially in collie-type breeds). A single notch typically deworms 250# ***** livestock, which is way more than most any dog will ever weigh. In the future, the liquid Ivermectin would be much safer or, ideally, a dewormer provided by your veterinarian.Once you're satisfied with our dialogue, please take the time to issue a rating for me so that I am compensated for helping you today. Best of luck!

We can't get to an er we have no ride.. He is a stray we were just trying to help
Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 8 months ago.
Hydrogen peroxide is going to be your best bet at this point. Unfortunately, at a dose this high, his only hope of not having major medical problems is to be forced to vomit. Using hydrogen peroxide is going to be the best method. The longer the ivermectin sits in his system the higher the risk of complications.

How do I give him the peroxide and how much
