You're speaking to Dr. Michael Salkin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm currently typing up my reply.

Yes, I would expect Lulu to remain well. The proton-pump blocker antacids such as lansoprazole are well-tolerated by dogs even in excess. Transient GI distress in the form of diarrhea might arise but Lulu is more likely to remain unaffected. There's no reason to induce emesis or treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
