Lynda, we begin to get concern about kidney failure when the ingested dose of Advil is above 125mg/kg. In doses below that we tend to see abdominal pain, ulceration, etc. highly unlikely for this to be fatal. The dose Twinkie took based on her weight was 13mg/kg, this will not cause kidney failure but it can cause abdominal pain, ulcers, etc. This is what you can do:
1- Start her on Pepcid AC (famotidine
) 10mg 1.5 (one & half) tablet every 12 hours for 7-10 days. You can buy pepcid ac over the counter in any pharmacy.
2- Do not give things like pepto bismol.
3- Change her diet
to a bland diet of rice and boiled boneless chicken
or ground beef for a few days.
4- Have her checked by family veterinarian they can give her medication for the lameness
. In the meantime rest her, no running or jumping for the next 4 weeks. If cost is a concern consider having her checked by your local ASPCA or Shelter where they often offer veterinary services at a lower cost. My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back. I am happy to address follow-up questions. Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon!
