The Amdro products contain hydramethylnon - a pyrethroid of very low toxicity to mammals*. A 60 lb dog might experience transient gastrointestinal distress in the form of inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea from ingesting such a small amount but Ella wasn't intoxicated. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

*Tthe oral rat LD50 (the amount that will kill 50% of rats) is a huge 1100 to 1300 mg/kg. (Kidd, 1991).
