Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet Tech for 30+ years.

How long ago did you give the pill?

Do you have 3% Hydrogen Peroxide in the house?

it was about 1 1/2 hours ago. Yes, I have the peroxide
Expert:  Joan replied 5 months ago.

Please give feed a piece of bread and give 1 teaspoon of the Hydrogen Peroxide per 10 pounds to the back of the throat. Jostle the stomach and jog the dog around. This may not work becasue the medication is usd in humans for motion sickness, but worth a try. There is no information on the medication since it is not used in Dogs. We can try to induce Vomiting, but if it dos not work you may want to consider seeing the ER Vet. Even if we can get the dog to vomit I would have blood work in the morning.
