Motrin is Ibuprofen and toxic to dogs. If your pup did not vomit the tablet up, chances are that he did not eat it. That being said, it's enough to cause renal failure and possibly claim his life if he did ingest the full 200mg and he's so small. I would recommend going directly to the ER to have vomiting induced again with injectable medication. This will be the best way to be sure that it is removed from the stomach if it was there to begin with. Did my response help to answer all of the questions that you had regarding your companion?

will vitamin k1 25 mg counter act the ibuprofen
Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 1 year ago.
It will not. I'm afraid that would be more along the lines of a rat bait toxicity and not an ibuprofen toxicity (that's if he even consumed it). If he did consume it, it's enough to cause great damage. If not, he won't suffer any ill effects of being made to vomit.
