Welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian. I am not set up to make a live call. But, I am happy to answer your question on this thread. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.

1- How much does your dog weigh?

2- How many milligrams was the Advil?

3- How long has it been since she ate the Advil?

Friend, a single dose of Advil 200mg for a 25 lbs dog will not be toxic. You see, in this case based on weight the dose comes out to 11mg/kg. We start getting concern with gastrointestinal effects (ulcers, vomiting, etc.) with doses above 25mg/kg. Doses above 100mg/kg we get concern about renal failure. Your dog will be fine, no need to worry.

Please do not forget to rate my answer - I hope you found it to be excellent. If there’s more I can do, please use the reply tab and let me know. It’s my goal to provide you with excellent service." Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon!
