Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. About how long ago did she ingest the nicotine? If it has been about an hour or less, I would recommend trying to make her vomit by giving her a tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide. If it has been longer than an hour, I would recommend taking her to the vet, because that amount of nicotine can cause a lot of deleterious effects on the heart and GI tract. It would be best to start treatment tonight if possible.
