Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Andy, Medical Director replied 2 years ago

Hello,

Studies with this medication indicated that even larger doses were well tolerated in dogs. Ideally, we would have wanted vomiting induced within 30 minutes or a hour at longest. But, some vomiting may be better than none.

With only 2.5mg ingested I see no ondication for emergency treatment or inducing any further vomiting.

In fact, I think there would be more complication simply from the peroxide itself causing the vomiting or subsequent diarrhea than the medication.

Also, since this was a low dose and only one time ingestion, the likelihood for any long-term blood thinning or bleeding problems is very low.

Hope that information helps.

Also, since Tuck vomited, you could give a 1/2 tablet of a Pepcid A.C. 10mg regular strength antacid to help settle the stomach.

Good Luck

Dr. Andy
