Hi, I'm a licensed veterinarian and I'll be happy to help.

Rovera is a non-steroidal anti inflammatory drug, and this is a very serious situation.

I would strongly recommend immediate veterinary attention, so that vomiting can be induced, followed by activated charcoal liquid, and intravenous fluids for 48-72 hours. Failure to be proactive in treating this issue, can result in severe gastric ulcers, intestinal perforation, or kidney failure. These issues can be fatal.

I would not suggest waiting any longer to seek veterinary care!
