Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.
Since Cody is such a large lad, this dose would be no worry at all. It is actually right in the middle of the Prilosec dosing range we use in dogs. Therefore, we'd not be worried here and there is no treatment necessary. Of course, if he is a sensitive stomached lad, we could see a bit of GI upset, but would only need to offer a light diet (ie rice with boiled chicken, white fish, or scrambled egg) to settle that for him.
I hope this information is helpful.
If you need any additional information, do not hesitate to ask!
All the best,
Dr. B.
