Good Afternoon and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

If this has been within a 2 hr window, give your puppy 3 teaspoons of hydrogen peroxide to induce vomiting which will remove the pill from her system. If she has not vomited within 15 minutes, do this again. You can safely do this 3 times. If it has been over 2 hrs, I would not worry. Only 1 5 mg tablet will not harm your girl as long as she is over 5 pounds of weight.

Does that make sense to you?

Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.
Sincerely, ***** *****
