Good Morning and welcome to Just answer. I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

If Squirt has eaten this within 2 hrs, then induce vomiting by giving her 1 teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide per 20 pounds of her weight. If within 10 minutes, she has not vomited this pill, do it again. If this has not removed this pill, take Squirt to your vet...they will have an injection that b will remove this pill. This blood pressure medication could cause a severe drop in Squirts blood pressure and cause her serious issues....removing it is the only safe thing.

Good Luck!

Sincerely, XXXXX XXXXX
