Customer Question

my 9 month old border collie pup had a bottle of ibuprofen he was chewing on yesterday and pills on the floor I'm not sure how much he ingested but now he has vomiting and diarrhea but acts fine full of energy running and playing

Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) What milligram strength are these tablets?

2) Do you have any idea the maximum number he could have consumed?
3) Is the vomit and diarrhea bloody?
4) Is he still trying to eat and drink?
