I did find some peroxide!!!

Friend, the dose that your dog took is significant for a 7 lbs dog; I don't believe it will be fatal, but, it can cause symptoms like profound lethargy or restlessness, difficulty walking, vomiting, drooling, etc. This is what you can do to make him vomit with peroxide:

1- Give him 1 teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide orally to induce vomiting.

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

3- If he does not vomit and you have access to ER veterinarian I would have him checked within the hour and they can try to make him vomit with a medication called apomorphine. Or, you can observe him at home and if the above symptoms develop you then take him to ER veterinarian for supportive care.

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!
