Hi. I’m Dr. Denise, a licensed veterinarian. Welcome to JustAnswer! I’d like to help with your concerns regarding Lola.

I'm so sorry to hear that Lola made such a bad choice and ingested human medication.

My best recommendation includes 3 steps:

1. Induce her to vomit.

2. Call Animal Poison control - especially considering that she ingested 3 different medications. They will be needed to evaluate her risks and appropriate treatment.

3. As soon as she has vomited, take her to a Emergency Veterinary facility IMMEDIATELY.

Instructions to induce her to vomit:

I recommend inducing Lola to vomit. Do you have hydrogen peroxide?

She will need about (30ml = 2 Tablespoons) of hydrogen peroxide orally.

Then walk her inside on a leash with a garbage bag to catch her vomit.

If she does not vomit within 10-15 min of the hydrogen peroxide, she can have a second dose.

It is important that she vomit to the point of dry heaving, to know that her stomach is empty.
