How long ago did this happen?

Approximately 30 minutes ago.
Thank you for the information.

The good news is that this drug when given in high doses only one time will cause only vomiting diarrhea and not eating for a short period of time (1-2 days). The only time this drug causes serious problems or death is when it is given at this high of a dose for more than 10 days.

At most your pooch should have an upset stomach for the next couple of days. Nothing should need to be done right now.

I hope this helps, best wishes.

Should she be feeling lethargic as well? Just wondering what to expect.
If her stomach is starting to cramp then yes she can feel lethargic.

So you definitely would not recommend induced vomiting at this time?
I wouldn't, the act of inducing vomiting is not a benign process. It can cause severe stomach ulcer and it can cause aspiration pneumonia, both of which can be fatal. Unless she has a history of allergy to the medication I would allow the drugs to be absorbed and deal with the couple days of upset stomach. If you are worried you can have a vet induce vomiting within the first hour. However if you were my client I'd just tell you to observe your pooch if she has any other symptoms besides stomach upset then I would see the vet but this is unlikely to happen.
