Customer Question
I have a 5...

I have a 5 lb Yorkie and I think he ate 1 Ibuprofen tablet. He has thrown up 2x and he’s trying to vomit now.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?

Lil Bit and he’s 3

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Lil?

No...just threw up again.

But before I can start I need a little more information to make things clearer to me, so could you please confirm the following :

1. How long ago did this happen { How many minutes or hours ago }?

2. What was the strength of the Ibuprofen { In mg }?
