Hello,

I am sorry to hear you are worried about your dog. How long ago did this happen?

How much does your dog weigh and how much trazadone and clonazapam did he get? This might not be a problem but I need his weight and how much he got to calculate if this is an overdose.

I also need his weight to tell you how much hydrogen peroxide to give to induce vomiting.

w/I 4 MIN ATE MORE TRAZADONE THAN CLONAZAPAM, BUT NOT SURE HOW MANY OF EACH. SHE IS 40 POUNDS.
Expert:  Rebecca replied 1 year ago.

Without knowing how much she got, it might be best to induce vomiting. You need fresh hydrogen peroxide; if it is old it won't work.

You can give 2 teaspoons of peroxide in some milk or ice cream. That should get her to empty her stomach in 5 minutes or so.

If it does not work, try it once more.

The alternative is to go to a veterinary clinic for some apomorphine to induce vomiting.
