Friend, the amount of Ibuprofen and Meloxicam he ate for his size will likely cause renal failure. I would strongly recommend trying to make him vomit with peroxide. If you do not see all of the pills in the vomit take him to the nearest veterinarian immediately for supportive care. This is what you can do:

1- Give him 1 teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide orally to induce vomiting.

2- Allow him to walk for a minute and move his belly to mix stomach content with peroxide. If he does not vomit within 5-10 minutes, repeat it again. Can give a total of 3 times 5-10 minutes apart.

3- If you do not see all the pills in the vomit or he does not vomit take him to the nearest veterinarian immediately for supportive care.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service. If you have any follow-up questions don't hesitate to ask. If finished, please take a moment to rate my service. See you again soon!
