Q. hey can 60 mg of vyvanse kill my 19 lb siberian husky hes 3 months old and heart rate is 200

A. A heart rate of 200 is concerning and your dog needs to be taken to the Pet ER right away. Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) is a central nervous system stimulant and potentially fatal. Please take your dog to the ER now.
