1- Did you see the medication in the vomit?

2- How long between you inducing vomiting and them taking the pills?

Friend, you did right inducing vomiting, that is the first step when dealing with the ingestion of medications. However, not knowing if they did vomit the medication or which dog took the medication it will be difficult to predict any outcome. I would recommend you keep an eye on them now for the next 24 hours, any dog that you notice symptoms of: Lethargy, difficulty breathing, anorexia, weakness, muscle tremors, etc. I would have him/her checked by ER veterinarian for supportive care.
