Yes you can induce vomiting while I review the medication versus her weight.
If your dog ingested this within the last hour then you can induce vomiting with 3% hydrogen peroxide 1 tsp per ten pounds (i.e. 1 tbsp) then walk around to mix it in the stomach and agitate the lining. If no vomiting within 10-15 minutes it can be repeated once only in hopes of inducing vomiting.
Bisoprolol is a beta blocker that is not commonly used in veterinary medicine but while there can be no guarantees going on my experience other human beta blockers I would do not feel this will be a fatal incident. Please monitor for symptoms lethargy, weakness, and a slow heart rate overnight.Bisoprolol peaks within 1.5-3.5 hours. Therapeutic dose is 1 mg/kg in dogs and if your dog is 30 pounds (14 kg) the concentration ingested would be 0.7 so this dose is slightly under the therapeutic dose this so it shouldn't be an issue. Again if you notice weakness or collapse, then getting to an ER clinic is recommended for evaluation and fluid therapy.If there is no vomiting and/ or any odd symptoms do develop it would be safest to take your dog to the nearest ER vet without delay.Please let me know if you have any additional questions today
