Expert:  Scott Perry replied 4 months ago.

The amount she swallowed based on her weight was not a toxic dose. She swallowed approximately 70 milliliters and a toxic level is about 135-140 milliliters. Some dogs exhibit signs of upset stomach such as vomiting or diarrhea, so this should be monitored. If she is acting normal, then nothing needs to be done.
