My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that your dog got the vetmedin.

Can you make the little one vomit? You can give 1-2 teaspoons of hydrogen peroxide by mouth and he should vomit within 5 to 15 minutes.

Realistically a one time slightly high dose of this medication should not cause any problems. The regular dose is 0.25mg/kg and your dog got 0.35mg/kg. This is only barely above the label dose and shouldn't cause any problems.

You can make her vomit if you are really worried, though.

Does this help? What other questions do you have?
