I made the mistake of giving my 11 yr old dog who is a Rhodesian ridgeback and 80 lbs half an ibuprofen as she seemed stiff and not moving well before looking online to realize it's not safe for dogs. With her size and her only taking half a pill do I need to call the vet?

This last Tuesday, our dog received a distemper booster. He

This last Tuesday, our dog received a distemper booster. He is 6 years old, so it's not a first time thing. He had had a very touchy stomach ever since we've had him & has been in grain free food since he was 1 year old. Our vet's office had an emergency & they were Kate getting to us - as a result, he was offeredd 2 treats while in the waiting room & 2 more while we were in the treatment room. I never gave it aNY thought, but I'm fairly sure the treats weren't grain free. He has had stomach distress since Wednesday, with a slightly bloody discharge in his stool off & on. Friday night, I was up at 5AM to take him out, where he had semi-diarrhea. Today, I have gone to a cooked chicken/rice feeding for blandness & am hoping to avoid a visit to the emergency vet until our vet opens tomorrow. Is there anything we can give him to help relieve any pain - he stretches up & down periodically & I'm pretty sure he's uncomfortable.JA: The Veterinarian's require payment for their services. It's way less expensive on JustAnswer than face-to-face would cost. I'm sorry to hear that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?Customer: Only that he has expressed discomfort when he's had items (food/treats) that aren't gluten/grain free. Other than that, he is very healthy. How much is the fee?
