Hello. Was it just one tablet? 81 or 325 mg?
Expert:  Dr. Gary replied 5 months ago.
Hopefully it was just an 81 mg tab. In that case, we can see some mild GI upset (vomiting, diarrhea), but it's rarely a problem. If it were a 325 mg tab, then I would see a vet to give activated charcoal and put her on some GI protectants for a few days. If you need to just try something at home, you can use over the counter Pepcid (Famotidine)- 5 mg every 12 hours for 3-5 days. I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
