Thankfully, Jay will remain safe.  This product contains just 50 mg of ibuprofen.  How much does Jay weigh, please?

Thankfully, Jay will remain safe.  This product contains just 50 mg of ibuprofen.  How much does Jay weigh, please?

Doses of 11 mg/lb or more often lead to gastrointestinal problems and ulceration, manifested as vomiting, diarrhea, or abdominal pain.  50 mg/40 lbs is just 1.25 mg/lb.  There's no need to induce vomiting nor treat in any manner.  You can feed and water as usual.

Please respond with additional questions and concerns if you wish.

thank you so much we are so worried we got him at 2months and have become so attached thanks again

I understand!  You're quite welcome.
