Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

Good news, we do use Loratidine (the antihistamine in this) in dogs and the dose is within the normal range. So, while it could cause sleepiness/sedation or GI upset for Zoey, its not likely to cause lasting harm. So while we could induce vomiting or use activated charcoal at this point (which I am happy to discuss), we don't strictly need to. You can choose to just take things easy and monitor for today. As well to offset any GI upset, you can consider offering a light diet option. Examples of an easily digestible diet include cooked white rice with boiled chicken, boiled white fish, scrambled egg, or meat baby food (as long as its free from garlic or onion powder). Ideally, we want to offer this as small frequent meals to keep the stomach settled. but again this isn't an overdose and it is a drug we do often use in dogs.

Kind regards,

Dr. B.
