She did not vomit after the first 45 -50 mg of peroxide so waited ten minutes and just gave her another 45mg of it about 5 mins ago
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
She has a stomach of steel
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Peter, Veterinarian replied 3 months ago

You mean 45 mls, correct?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Sorry yes, meant ml
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Peter, Veterinarian replied 3 months ago

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

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
No at this point she has only had 95 mls of hydrogen peroxide
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Peter, Veterinarian replied 3 months ago

Please give me 5-10 minutes to type your answer. No need to accept the phone call request. Thank you.

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!
