Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!If you are able to answer Dr Andy's questions it would be ideal to proceed to give you an idea of level of concernIf your dog ingested this within the last hour then you can induce vomiting with 3% hydrogen peroxide 1 tsp per ten pounds (1/2 tsp) then walk around to mix it in the stomach and agitate the lining. If no vomiting within 10-15 minutes it can be repeated once only in hopes of inducing vomiting. If you are unable to respond this is the safest way to ensure that we have minimal risks with this ingestion due to her size that would be idea. This product contains aspirin and caffeine so even a small amount in such a tiny little dog could cause issues including vomiting, diarrhea, hyperexcitability to lethargy, irregular heart beat rhythms to name a few. So if you are able to remove it that would be idealI will wait for any further information and hopefully you will receive this in time to induce vomiting and remove any risks of this causing issues for you.
