Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both todayCan you please tell me the mg of the advil and the quantity that is suspected to be ingested?Also what amount of peroxide you administered? She should have 3 tablespoons as a maximum dose for a dog...Thank you
You can try repeating the peroxide, 10 teaspoons is almost equivalent to the 3 tbsp so that is absolutely fine.Just to clarify, several meaning 2-3 or did you suspect there were more in there?Thank you
So let's say that 3 advil 200 mg were ingested equaling 600 mg totalDelilah being 130 pounds (59 kg) and ingesting 600 mg would mean that the ingestion was approximately 10 mg/kg ingestion25-125 mg/kg shows vomiting, diarrhea, nausea, abdominal pain, anorexia > 175 mg/kg All of the above plus hematemesis, melena (blood in stool), polyuria or polydipsia, oliguria, uremia, acute renal failureSo let's hope that if any were ingested that it was only a few tablets because that will only reflect gi upset as listed aboveI would try another round of hydrogen peroxide and either giggle her belly for a few moments to agitate the lining of the stomach or walk her around as an alternative. No water please which will dilute the peroxide
If you are able to induce vomiting then wait a few hours and give a dose of pepcid (famotidine) 20 mg 1 & 1/2 tablet every 12 hours for a few days or alternatively prilosec (omeprazole) 40 mg 1 & 1/2 tablets orally daily and wait until morning to feed a bland diet of white rice and boiled chicken in small more frequent mealsIf you are not able to induce vomiting then please give the antacid now and a meal of the bland diet to protect her stomach and reduce absorption of the medicationIf she ingested several more of the advil then suspected then there is a concern that this might lead to issues with her kidneys and if at all possible I would advise having bloodwork done on her Monday to ensure her kidney function is normal. Because it can be several days that a dog can act perfectly normal before having issues with kidney diseaseI hope this makes sense but please let me know how else I can assist you both tonight...
