Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 2 months ago.

I am very sorry to see that no one has reached out to you before now.

We can begin to see symptoms with as little as 10mg of adderall in a dog Lili's size, which is the dose she consumed. 3 hours following ingestion would likely be too late to induce vomiting as we usually begin to see symptoms within 30-60 minutes of ingestion. I would highly recommend a veterinary visit for her since the low end of a toxic dose has been consumed. Failing this, be on the lookout for agitated behavior, vocalizing, head bobbing, racing heart rate, shaking and seizures. If she begins to act abnormally, she absolutely needs to visit an ER overnight promptly.
