Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

I'm sorry to hear that Buddy was injured. Have you already medicated him? If so, how many milligrams of acetaminophen were given and how long ago?

It sounds like you gave 150mg at each dosing. This appears to be a therapeutic dosage of acetaminophen, which should be given no more frequently than every 8 hours.
