Hello again,

Basically your dog should be just fine, however I have worked out a fuller answer for you below.

1. Actually my experience is that these sorts of products are not that toxic to dogs in the quantity you mention, in fact many dogs will not suffer any sort of adverse symptoms but a few may experience a mild transient bout of vomiting and / or diarrhoea.

2. You did not do wrong in inducing vomiting, but really all you need to do is just to monitor your dog for now. But in any case I should be available online for you the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me if your dog's condition changes in any way or if you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,

Dr Scott
