I'll follow up for Dr. Peter for you. One half of an Excedrin contains 125 mg of acetominophen, 125 mg of aspirin, and 32.5 mg of caffeine. None of those ingredients is dangerous to an 11 lb dog in those amounts. You might see transient agitation from the caffeine. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
