Hello, thank you for contacting us at Just Answer. I will need a little more information to determine if Phoebe will be ok after eating the tablet. Can you tell me how much Phoebe weighs and what breed of dog? Also, what size was the naproxen tablet - how many mg? You can find that on the bottle label. This drug can be dangerous for dogs depending on how much they ingested so if you could get the dog weight and tablet mg to me I will run some calculations.

Hi thank you for your reply, I ended up taking her to the vet who made her sick and she’s fine now. Thank you again.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Gwen, Dog Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

I'm very happy to hear you took her to the vet for treatment. Great job on getting her to vomit the tablet there! That is by far the safest way to take care of the situation. You and Phoebe have a great day, and tell her no more naproxen!
