So to make sure I got this right she has had a total of 140 mls of Peroxide, correct?

Friend, the total dose of peroxide given orally should be 50mls, when you go above 50mls the dog may develop hemorrhagic gastroenteritis. The dose of Naproxen that she took can cause ulceration of the gastrointestinal tract and renal failure. Do not give anymore peroxide or things will be worse for her. Unfortunately, not much more you can do at home for her, I am sorry. I would recommend taking her to the nearest ER veterinarian and they can make her vomit with a medication called apomorphine. In addition, start her on a supportive care.

I realize that this answer may not be entire to your liking, and I regret being the bearer of information that you really don’t want to hear. But it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me were I to provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information. I hope you understand.

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!
