Friend, naproxen is very easily toxic to dogs. Doses of 5mg/kg we begin to see gastrointestinal ulceration. Doses above 25mg/kg we see renal failure. Your dog based on his weight took a dose of 22mg/kg, this can potentially be fatal for your dog. In addition, the imitrex can cause agitation, vocalization, etc. Unfortunately after 3 hours inducing vomiting with peroxide will not help. At this stage he should be seen by ER veterinarian and start him on supportive care of IV fluids and activated charcoal with the goal to avoid kidney failure. Highly recommend not waiting and taking him to the nearest ER veterinarian. I realize that this answer may not be entirely to your liking, and I regret being the bearer of information that you really don’t want to hear. But it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me were I to provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information. I hope you understand.
