Hello, this is Dr. Linda. I hope I can help with your concerns today.

This may be a significant overdosage situation with the risk of real damage to your dog. The problem is in not knowing how much Shadow actually ingested, & the fact that there are individual variations in sensitivities to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

The damage that could be done includes gastric ulcers & acute renal failure. Can you have her seen by your veterinarian? She may need to be admitted for fluids & gastric decontamination.

Please let me know how I can further help.

Thank you.
