Hello, my name is***** am a licensed veterinarian and I will try and help you as best as I can.

Expert:  Dr. G. replied 1 year ago.

I am sorry to hear your dog ate this medication. I will need a bit more information to help you today.

Can you tell me what medication your dog ate and how many mg (milligrams) it was?

How much does your dog weigh and how long ago did your dog eat the medication?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
atenolol 50mg He weighs around 100 lbs. taken 30 minutes ago
Expert:  Dr. G. replied 1 year ago.

I see. This dose is above the recommended dose for a dog this weight, so he did get a little of an overdose. This can cause a decrease in heart output, which could lead to lethargy and potentially collapse. I would consider making him vomit to be on the safe side. Do you have any hydrogen peroxide at home?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Expert:  Dr. G. replied 1 year ago.

You can induce vomiting via hydrogen peroxide orally at home, or via your vet and an injection. To do this at home, you can give 10 teaspoons of hydrogen peroxide orally. If there is no vomiting after 10 minutes, you can give another dose, but not more than 2 total doses. Vomiting should bet rid of any drug left in the GI tract.
