You're speaking with Dr. Michael Salkin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm currently typing up my reply.

Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 3 months ago.

You can induce emesis with 45 mL (3 measuring tablespoons) of 3% hydrogen peroxide administered with a small poultry baster placed between Zya's cheek teeth and cheek. She should vomit within 15 minutes. If not, please repeat the same dose.

Acetaminophen becomes toxic at 70 mg/lb. If Molly weighs 100 lb, for instance, it would take 7000 mg to intoxicate her. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

ok I have to go to the store to get that, is there anything else i might need if this doesn't work
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 3 months ago.

No, there's nothing else safe to induce emesis in dogs at home. I can't set a follow-up in this venue so please return to our conversation - even after rating - with an update at your convenience. You can bookmark this page for ease of return.

You gave it your best. May I have an update on Zya, please?
