Welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian. I am not set up to make a live call. But, I am happy to answer your question on this thread. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.

1- How much does she weigh?

2- How many milligrams were the medications?

3- Can you take a look at her gums and see if they are pink or pale?

Friend, I am going offline I am going to opt out so that if you come back another expert can help you. I am sorry I can not wait any longer.

How is she doing now?

Can you tell me the strength, how many milligrams of naproxen, lisonopril and amlodipine she got, and how much she weighs? The naproxen alone is worrying; it can cause stomach ulcers and kidney damage in dogs. How long ago did she get the medicines? My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian. It appears your first expert has left the conversation.
