Hi,I'm Dr Scott. Welcome to JustAnswer, I am working on your question now, you can expect a written reply sometime within the next ten minutes or so.

Hello again,

I have worked out an answer for you below ...

1. Please don't give this a second thought, Bella should be just fine, and there are no special measures you need take.

2. The reason I say the above is that Deramaxx can be used in dogs at dose rates of up to 2 mg per pound of bodyweight for post operative pain and the 150 mg that Bella took is very close to this so no adverse effects will be expected. You can confirm this and read more on how this drug is used in dogs via this link : LINK

3. But in any case I should be available online for you the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me in the very unlikely event that Bella's condition changes in any way or you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,

Dr Scott
