Thank you for your question, I'm Dr. Dan and I'll try to help you. I have good news for you. This is a high dose but not a dangerous dose. This drug has been tested up to the point where your dog could have eaten 18 of them and generally the only side effects are sedation, vomiting, and drooling. The only side effect to be concerned about is if she starts vomiting more than 3-4 times then the vet should administer an anti-vomiting shot to make sure she doesn't get dehydrated. In most cases this will cause minimal if any problem at all. She'll likely be just fine. I hope this helps, if not please feel free to ask more questions, if it did help, please leave a rating. Dr. Dan
