I am sorry to hear this happened. Puppies can be very fast. How long ago did this happen?Is the puppy fine otherwise?Any vomiting or diarrhea?

She laid down and is sleeping
Expert:  Dr. G. replied 5 months ago.
I see. The dose is just a little above a standard 24 hour dose for a puppy her size. Most likely there will not be any problem. I would not induce vomiting or do anything else. It is likely there will be no side effects as long as she doesn't eat more. What you may see is a little upset stomach: diarrhea or maybe vomiting, but it is unlikely that will happen. She should be just fine.
