Customer Question

Hi I think my dog may have eaten some ibuprofen, I don't know when this happened but I found half chewed up Ibuprofen in his bed this afternoon it was 200mg strength and he possibly ate three. He has been urinating a lot over the last three days. He had few bowel movement every day, but last three days his poo looks a bit dry. Behaviour wise he is his normal self. He is 13 months old working line Golden retriever and he weighs around 30 kg.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

How has his appetite been?

Any black stools or vomiting?

Any increase to his thirst or urination?
Does his urine look more pale then usual?

Hi, Unfortunately Buddy is now hospitalised and on a drip. His bloods are showings signs of renal failure. I have waited for your response, but as I haven't heard I just called emergency vet.

Could you please refund me as I find your response came far too late.

Thank you
