Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. Thank you for using JustAnswer. About how long ago did he eat the Idomethacin? If it was less than an hour ago, I would give 9 tablespoons of 3% hydrogen peroxide to induce vomiting.

an hour

Ok, I would induce vomiting right away if you can. If you are not able to, I would take him to the vet for detoxification if possible. This medication can cause GI upset including GI ulceration and GI perforation at that dose.

how do u get dog to take peroxide

I typically mix it with some food, milk, or yogurt to get them to take it.

ok he drank milk peroxide solution, how soon will vomitting occur

Typically within 15 minutes. If he does not vomit within that amount of time, I would give another dose.
