That sounds similar to the mistake I made a couple weeks ago.
Mind you, I worked at a vet office all through high school.
We had mealybugs on our tomato plants.
The neighbor said to put used coffee grounds all along the base of the plants.
Well, I did and a couple hours later realized that foster puppy was acting like a total whack.
Looked outside and all the coffee grounds had been eaten?
Our puppy was sitting still but her eyes were zooming around in her head.
Called my vet who said "You know, coffee can kill a dog. Did you not learn anything when you worked here?"
OK, I was in high school.
She said I could induce vomiting but I was not sure how long it had been since ingested.
Told me to keep a close eye and take her to ER if needed.
She bounced around the room for a couple of hours then started to go to sleep.
My daughter thought she was dying but she was obviously getting tired.
Next day seemed fine.
Hugs to you and your pooch.
