Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. Thank you for using JustAnswer. The first thing I would do would be to give her 5 tablespoons of peroxide to help induce vomiting if you have any on hand.

hydrogen peroxide? and do u think she will drink it?

Yes, hydrogen peroxide. If you have a syringe, the best way would be to administer it orally that way. I have had dogs eat it in a bit of food as well.

ok thanks she’s acting a little weird right now as we speak she seems a little weak and lazy

That is a common symptom of an overdose of that medication. After making her vomit, I would take her in to the emergency vet so they can administer activated charcoal to help bind the drug so she doesn't get any further effects of the medication.

she refuses to take it even with food

Ok, in that case, I would just go right to the ER vet so they can give her the activated charcoal. They might try an injectable medication to help make her vomit once you get there.
