Hello,
Sorry to hear about the ibuprofen.
Can you tell me when it was ingested?
About what does your dog weigh?
Thank you

He weighs about 50lbs and it happened about an hour ago f
Okay,
No, I am not concerned about this ingestion. Based on the typical ibuprofen tablet and the size of your dog, I have no concerns for stomach problems or kidney problems. I would not induce vomiting for this ingestion.
I have included a link below with a little more information about ibuprofen toxicity.
I don't believe you have anything to worry about. If for any reason, you do observe any signs of illness (vomiting, bad diarrhea, not eating), I would notify your doctor. He should be fine.
Hope that helps.
