Hi Kathy, thanks for your question.

Has Gunner experienced any vomiting or other symptoms since consumption?

Thank you. I'm typing a response for you now, it will take me about 5 minutes. You're welcome to wait, if you like.

Gunner is large enough that the ambien is very unlikely to affect him. Dogs his size show reactions when 10mg or more of ambien are consumed.

You are welcome to induce vomiting to ensure this is not a concern. Here are the instructions:

Dogs who did show symptoms after ingestion (remember, well above what Gunner has received for his size) were observed with: walking like they were drunk, being hyperactive, vomiting, lethargy as well as disorientation. This are signs to be on the lookout for, although it's unlikely you will see them.
