Dogdoc4u :

Welcome to the chat!! I am Dr. Altman, a licensed veterinarian and happy to answer your questions today.

Dogdoc4u :

Callie ingested approximately 2 mg/ kg. Generally dosages below 20 mg/kg cause mild signs only, most commonly vomiting and lethargy.

Dogdoc4u :

If we want to minimize the side effects and since it is less than an hour from ingestion you can give 2 tsp of 3% hydrogen peroxide and walk her around. The walking is critical to mix the peroxide in her stomach and agitate the lining

Dogdoc4u :

This can be repeated once in 15 minutes if there is no vomiting

Dogdoc4u :

I am going to change formats in case you are having difficulties with live chat

Dogdoc4u :

Please let me know if you have any additional questions I can assist with or clarify
