I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. This is a serious intoxication that should be attended to by Zelda's vet rather than your dosing Zelda with 3% hydrogen peroxide. Zelda's vet can induce reliable emesis and then follow up with tubing Zelda with activated charcoal. Symptoms of intoxication can be addressed as they arise. Please see here: I regret that I'm not allowed to communicate with customers by phone. Please stay in this conversation but I'd rather that you were on your way to the vet.
