Welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian. I am currently not set up to make a live call. But, I am happy to answer your question on this thread. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.
1- How long has it been since you gave the Cephalexin?
2- Do you have hydrogen peroxide 3%?
1- Is she currently on any medication?
Friend, at this dose cephalexin can cause crystals that damage the kidneys. For this reason it is best to try to induce vomiting and get it out of the stomach; need to move quickly before the pill moves out of the stomach. This is what you can do once you have the peroxide 3%:
1- Give her 1 teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide orally to induce vomiting.2- Allow her to walk for a minute and move her belly to mix stomach content with peroxide. If she does not vomit within 5-10 minutes, repeat it again. Can give a total of 3 times 5-10 minutes apart.
3- If you do not see the cephalexin in the vomit or she does not vomit I would have her checked in to ER vet to start her on IV fluids and help the body metabolize and get rid of the cephalexin to protect her kidneys.
