I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner and I regret that my state board of veterinary examiners doesn't allow my speaking with customers by phone in this venue. Please stay in this conversation if you wish. A one time oral overdose of the penicillins such as amoxicillin isn't expected to cause any more than GI distress (inappetence, vomiting, and/or diarrhea. other effects are possible, however, and include elevated liver enzymes, tachypnea (increased respiratory rate), dyspnea (difficulty breathing), edema, and tachycardia (increased heart rate). There's no specific antidote and any treatment would be symptomatic and supportive.

How much does your dog weigh and can you estimate how many pills were ingested?
