Customer Question
My chihuahua just at...

My chihuahua just at 25mg of Benadryl that was meant for my 401b dog. I believe she is healthy but I have only had her for a few weeks. She is a rescue and is a year old. She ate it on a full stomach.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. The Expert will know if your dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name?

Amora

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Amora?

Not that I’m aware of.

Friend, you need to move quickly and try to get the puppy either to the nearest veterinarian so they can make her vomit. Or, pick up hydrogen peroxide 3% to try to make her vomit. This needs to be done within 1-2 hour of ingestion. The amount of benadryl she took is toxic for a 5 lbs dog. To make her vomit with peroxide this is what you do:

1- Give her 1/2 (half) teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide orally to induce vomiting.

2- Allow her to walk for a minute and move her belly to mix stomach content with peroxide. If she does not vomit within 5-10 minutes, repeat it again. Can give a total of 3 times 5-10 minutes apart.

Note: The fastest and best option is taking her to a vet immediately.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service. If you have any follow-up questions don't hesitate to ask. If finished, please take a moment to rate my service it is how I get compensated. See you again soon!
