I think my dog ate my mothers Aricept

I wouldn't induce emesis. Donepezil (Aricept) has been safely administered to dogs with cognitive dysfunction at doses of 10-30 mg. In one study it took 12 2months of 2.5 mg/lb daily to cause central nervous system signs in dogs. How much does your dog weight and how many milligrams was the Aricept, please?
