I found some chewed up pills of ibuprofen, unknown how many

Customer Question

Good evening. I found some chewed up pills of ibuprofen, unknown how many my 1 year old ***** ***** ate... she weighs around 21 lbs. I gave her some peroxide to induce vomit. Her vomit didn't show much ibuprofen in it, mostly her dinner. Just wondering if I should rush her to the vet. I just got my hours reduced at work but I would never want an animal to suffer.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name?
Customer: Lacey I know it is not good for them
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Lacey I?
Customer: SHe's very healthy and has no other health issues...

How many hours ago did you think she ate them?

What milligrams were the tablets?

Are her gums pink or pale/white?

How is she just now?
