Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

Now expired peroxide likely won't be of much use as it breaks down to water in contact with oxygen. Still if Karma only had 2 ounces, the risks here are mild. If anything we could see GI upset (vomiting, diarrhea, appetite loss) but not more severe signs. Therefore, hile we could try to induce vomiting with that peroxide (giving 20-60ml orally) or useOTC activated charcoal at this point (60-240 grams), we don't strictly need to. You can choose to just take things easy and monitor for today. As well to offset any GI upset, you can consider offering a light diet option. Examples of an easily digestible diet include cooked white rice with boiled chicken, boiled white fish, scrambled egg, or meat baby food (as long as its free from garlic or onion powder). Ideally, we want to offer this as small frequent meals to keep the stomach settled. Further to this, if we see any nausea, we can also treat with an antacid like Pepcid (More Info/Dose @http://www.petplace.com/article/drug-library/library/over-the-counter/famotidine-pepcid) or Zantac (More Info/Dose @ http://www.petplace.com/article/drug-library/library/over-the-counter/ranitidine-hcl-zantac). Whichever you use, we'd give this 20 minutes before food to allow absorption and of course double check with your vet before use if your wee one has any known health issues or is on any medications you haven't mentioned. But again this is thankfully a low dose for Karma's size and the risk of mild signs is all we'd expect here.

Kind regards,

Dr. B.
