This should not be a problem. A dog this size can handle that 500 mg of Acetaminophen. The opiate part is also well tolerated in dogs. We may see some mild lethargy, but other than that it should be well tolerated.

I would not do any GI decontamination or treatment here.

If you notice a decreased appetite or vomiting over the next 2-3 days, then check some bloodwork. Otherwise, I wouldn't worry about it.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
