Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

You'll need a fresh bottle of hydrogen peroxide. You can follow the directions here: http://www.sunrisepetclinicaz.com/vomiting.html

The general rule for peroxide is 5mls (or 1 teaspoon) per 10 pounds, orally. Repeat every 15-20 minutes, up to three times, until the animal vomits. Care must be taken, especially with cats, as aspiration into the lungs of the resulting foam can cause pneumonia.

Most often with overdosage we see sedation. If this occurs, she needs to be examined promptly.

I’ll be standing by if you have other questions. Let me know if I can help further.
