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

Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 24 days ago.

Practically speaking, the minimum dose of this drug for dogs is 6.25 mg (1/4 of a 25 mg tablet). 12.5 mg is still quite small of a dose when we consider that doses as high as 2 mg/lb (14 mg for your dog) are recommended. I wouldn't induce emesis or treat in any manner and I would expect your dog to remain unaffected. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
