I'm sorry to hear of this with Max. He ingested 220 mg/45 lbs = 4.9 mg/lb. At 2.5 mg/lb gastrointestinal ulceration arises. As the dose approaches 7 mg/lb renal failure can arise. It would be prudent to have Max's kidneys checked to see if they've been affected by the naproxen. He should be treated for ulceration with injectable antacid, antiemetic (if necessary) and the oral liquid "bandage" sucralfate. This is best done while hospitalized in a 24-hour facility if possible. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
