Hello, my name is***** von Waldburg. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help you and your pet today. Please know that vets are not legally able to prescribe any medication without an in-person exam. The system may generate a phone call offer but I am not able to speak on the phone at this time. I am reviewing your question and will get back to you shortly.

Customer
Okay thankyou

That is a lot of Ibprofen for such a small dog. I would be worried about her liver and kidneys. It would be a really good idea to go into the ER vet and get further treatment.

Customer
What happens if we cannot get her to a vet? Can we do anything for her now until the morning?

No, she needs IV fluids, activated charcoal and labs at the very least. You can only induce vomiting if it has been less than an hour after ingestion. That medication is usually absorbed in 20-30 minutes. I would go to the ER.

Customer
Okay, thankyou for your help.
