Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!Can you please tell me how much your little one weighs and how long ago this occurred?Thank you
Expert:  Dr. Altman replied 2 years ago.
In most cases we see no problems unless given at doses higher then 20mg per kg so once I have her weight I can determine the level of concern. So if she weighs more than 3 kg (6 pounds) we should be alright...Please monitor her for the following symptoms . Hyperactivity, trembling, stumbling when walking. If any of these develop then she should be seen by a vet immediately. While I would not expect to see any serious symptoms keep an eye on her as any dog can have a unexpected reaction.

If you want to be safe and she ingested this within the last hour then you can induce vomiting with 3% hydrogen peroxide 1 tsp per ten pounds 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.
