I might dose a dog at as much as 3 mg per kg of body weight of sildenafil (Viagra) which would be equivalent to ~30 mg for Maggie. 25 mg will be well-tolerated by her. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns. There's little information on adverse effects in dogs but cutaneous flushing of the inguinal skin and gastrointestinal effects (inappetence, vomiting, and or diarrhea) might be seen.

Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
