Friend, the dose your puppy took of Amitriptyline is of 10mg/kg, this could potentially be fatal for her if she is not treated by a veterinarian. Unfortunately we are very limited as to what you can do at home, highly recommend taking her to nearest ER vet immediately so they can induce vomiting and start her on supportive care. You need to move quickly before the pill moves out of the stomach. Do not wait any longer. I realize that this answer may not be entirely to your liking, and I regret being the bearer of information that you really don’t want to hear. But it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me were I to provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information. I hope you understand. Please do not forget to rate my answer - I hope you found it to be excellent. If there’s more I can do, please use the reply tab and let me know. It’s my goal to provide you with excellent service." Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon! Dr. Peter
