Alright, so the concern for renal(kidney) damage starts at 50mg/kg. This would be about 363mg and she ate 100mg. I would still recommend being on the safe side and getting her some fluids and activated charcoal to help absorb the medication. Are you able to get her to the vet today? How long ago did she eat the pills?

The antibiotic is not a concern.

Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Sara, Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

Alright, that may have moved out of her stomach today. Lets a least do an antacid today and try to get her to the vet tomorrow. It will be too late for the charcoal but they can administer fluids. What do you have at home.... pepcid, omeprazole..?

We have omeprozole for people
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Sara, Veterinarian replied 8 months ago

Hi, sorry had to take an x-ray of a kitty. You can give her half of a 20mg omeprazole. Or a whole tablet it they are 10mg. You can repeat this tonight.
