My 5 month old husky are a 20mg adderall around an hour ago

Customer Question

My 5 month old husky are a 20mg adderall around an hour ago and I've given her hydrogen peroxide to induce vomitting but she won't throw up. Should I be concerned?

How much does your husky weigh, please? Doses of Adderal of 0.25 mg/lb will just cause agitation but doses of 1-1.5 mg/lb can cause seizures and coma.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I'm not exactly sure but I'd say between 30 and 40lb

Also she ate it around an hour ago and she's just walking around smelling things but more than usual
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 1 year ago.
At 40 lbs (20 mg/40 lb) she would have ingested 0.5 mg/lb which should cause significant agitation but shouldn't be life-threatening. You can continue to "watchful wait" and have her sedated by her vet if she becomes too agitated in the form of shaking, vocalizing, or tremors. She appears to already be symptomatic ("smelling things more than usual") and so inducing emesis at this point isn't appropriate. Please continue our conversation if you wish.
