Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

35 lbs or more
Expert:  Dr. B. replied 8 months ago.

Thank you,

If she is 35lbs+, then this is no worry at all. This is within the safe dosing range for her size. Therefore, we could induce vomiting or use activated charcoal, but its not necessary. So, you need only monitor her for 24 hours and we'd expect no issue for her at all.

Please take care,

Dr. B.

it's ok. Just to make it clear she does not have heart failure and you think she won't have any side effects
Expert:  Dr. B. replied 8 months ago.

Hi again,

If she is a normal healthy dog, then it won't have any effect on her. If she has a sensitive stomach, we could see nausea and vomiting and you could put her on a light diet (ie rice with boiled chicken, white fish, or scrambled egg) in case. Otherwise it won't affect her heart at that dose.

Best wishes,

Dr. B.
