For a dog of her weight I would recommend a pepcid dose of ~15mg twice daily.

I would also advise feeding a light diet for the next few days - plain boiled chicken and rice, a little scrambled egg, plain white fish or light cottage cheese.
This can help take the strain off an irritated stomach and help things settle down.

Has she had any diet change recently? Any signs of diarrhea?
