Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!

If your dog ingested this within the last hour then you can induce vomiting with 3% hydrogen peroxide 1 tsp per ten pounds 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.

Luckily most of these will not be toxic but without a weight for your dog and the vitamin supplement name it is difficult to distinguish this point but first and foremost getting it out of her system is advised to hopefully reduce any gi upset that may result or any issues with ingestion of such a large quantity in a dog (risk varies with weight and supplement ingested)

I hope this information makes sense but please induce vomiting asap to remove it from her system. If she doesn't vomit after the second round of peroxide I would consider a veterinary er to give stronger medication such as apomorphine to get her to bring up the supplement contents...
