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

Doses as high as 3 mg/lb (30 mg for Molli) have been prescribed to dogs. 25 mg should be well-tolerated by Molli. The most common adverse signs in dogs were lethargy (23%), increased heart rate (20%), vomiting (18%), and slow heart rate (16%). I wouldn't induce emesis or treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

she should be fine? This happens about 30 min ago and she's full of energy like usual.
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 7 days ago.

I expect her to remain her usual self. These beta blockers are very well-tolerated in dogs with normal heart function. Please continue our conversation if you wish.
