Hello my name is***** but you can call me Dr. H, and I am a licensed veterinarian. I have been practicing for the past 6+ years and can offer my help with your pet concerns. Please give me one moment to type up my response and I will be right with you.

I understand you gave your pet a whole Deramaxx tablet instead of a 1/2 tablet. No worries. This may cause some upset stomach like a little vomiting or diarrhea, but it shouldn't be detrimental to your pet Crosby. Just skip the next dose since he doubled up on this dosage, and then resume your normal dosing after that. You can also give him some things to protect his stomach from being upset, which includes the following:

1) Pepcid AC- the dosage is 0.5-1mg/kg once every 12 hrs for the next 7 days. (1kg=2.2 lbs to help with your calculation for your pets weight).

2) A bland diet of boiled plain chicken and rice or cottage cheese for the next 3-5 days

Otherwise, continue to monitor Crosby for any continuous GI upset symptoms (vomiting, diarrhea, lack of appetite) and have him seen if these occur. However, he will likely be just fine. : )

Is there anything else I can assist you with today concerning your pet Crosby?

Hi. I am checking back with you to see how Crosby is doing today after having received double his dosage. Is everything ok with him as expected?
