My dog got into a bottle of naproxen sodium tablets 220 mg.

Customer Question
Hello, my dog got...

Hello, my dog got into a bottle of naproxen sodium tablets 220 mg. I don’t know how many were consumed. What should I do about this?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with your dog?

Right now I can’t tell any difference in the way she’s behaving

Veterinarian's Assistant: Where does your dog seem to hurt?

Should I be concerned about her consuming the naproxen tablets?

Veterinarian's Assistant: Can you see anything that looks wrong or different?

As of now, I do not

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is your dog eating normally?

I just came home and found the chewed up bottle and several chewed tablets... I don’t know how she’s eating yet

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK, abnormal eating. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?

Can you just check on naproxen sodium tablets 220 mg to see if I need to take my dog to an emergency clinic or not?

Ok thanks
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 3 months ago

Naproxen is such a deadly toxin to dogs that any ingestion should be attended to by an ER at your earliest convenience. At 2.5 mg/lb gastrointestinal ulceration can arise. At 7 mg/lb kidney failure can arise. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish but I'd rather you were on your way to a vet.
