My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that Lucky was given aleve. Vomiting is definitely the first side effect that we will see with this drug but it can also cause kidney failure and liver inflammation. I would strongly consider taking him to the local animal emergency room this evening. They will recommend IV fluids to protect the kidneys and a drug called misoprostal which is an antidote for the aleve. If you are not able to go to the ER this evening, you will need to take him to your regular vet first thing tomorrow.
