Fluoxetine might be dosed at up to a 1 mg/lb daily and so 20 mg isn't a significant overdose for an 18 lb dog. You might see transient anorexia, lethargy, GI effects, anxiety, or irritability arise but these symptoms need not be treated. Your puppy wasn't intoxicated. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
