Hello there. I am sorry to hear that Raider is trying to get himself into trouble tonight. I am happy to help you this evening. A one time dose of omeprazol in a dog his size will not have any serious side effects. He may have some soft stools for a day or two but nothing to concerning. Watch him closely. I would recommend feeding him like normal and watch over the next few days. If the stools become loose or liquidy for more than 48 hours have him seen by your vet. Otherwise this is not a major concern. I hope this helps and I hope this makes sense. Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions or concerns. I would be happy to help. Please do not forget to rate my response so I receive credit for my time. Thank you!
