Hello, this is Dr Benedetta, and I would like to help.

Ibuprofen in that amount can be very toxic and cause bleeding ulcers, as well as kidney and liver failure.

My recommendation is to have Perry seen at an emergency hospital where they can induce vomiting, and offer supportive care.

You can also make Perry vomit at home, by giving him/her 2 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide, and making him/her trot around to agitate the content of the stomach. This can be repeated once more, if it does not work the first time, but if it still does not work, Perry needs to be seen.

If this was my dog, I would go directly to the hospital, though.

Hope this helps!

Let me know if you have further questions!
