Hi, JaCustomer. Do you know how many rimadyl were consumed?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
there were 70 in the bottle and i initially thought my other dog ate them all but now with Sunny's symptoms it's obvious she ate some too. No telling how many each ate
Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 6 months ago.
It's certainly too late to have her produce the pills through vomiting, but it's not too late to take her to the ER. In fact, if she consumed up to 70 of them...the ER is exactly where she needs to be. They will definitely need to run some lab work on her to see how her organs are fairing after such a consumption. A major GI upset is also a risk.If my answer has helped you, please take the time today to leave positive feedback for me. This is the only way that I will be compensated for assisting you.
