Hello again I have worked out an answer for you below ... 1. As with a great many toxins provided the dog is still active and responsive then if you can induce vomiting within the first hour after ingestion then things may be OK. For the sake of speed I will give you a link on how to do this best : LINK 2. While there can be no guarantees if this was just a small amount the chances are you will see symptoms for 24 hours or so and then the dog will slowly recover as the drug works it's way out of her system. 3. Here are some text book numbers to give you an idea of toxicity. At around 0.5 mg of this drug per kg of your dog's bodyweight you might expect to see mild signs of amphetamine toxicity (agitation, hyperactivity, rapid heart rate, panting, muscle tremors). At doses of about 2-3 mg/kg more serious signs start to be seen. 4. Prescription drugs such as acepromazine or chlorpromazine can be given to counteract the effects. Also, a vet can give cyproheptadine (Periactin) orally or rectally dissolved in saline, which may be helpful. 5. If a visit to your vet is not possible for any reason then you can probably buy cyproheptadine without a prescription at a local pharmacy. Here is a link to more about it, including dose rates : LINKI hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you.
