Hi there. Thanks for the question. Doing the double dose once should not be a problem. Do not give any more rimadyl for 24-36 hours. Make sure she eats well and stays hydrated.

hydration is important to help flush out her body of the extra drug so if she,l eat her dry kibble soaked in water that will help increase water consumption. I hope this helps. Take care.
