Customer Question

I just gave him one 200 mg ibuprofen, now I find out it can be toxic to him. Should I get him to a vet?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Did you see what the dog ate?
Customer: He has been limping around today, check his paw to make sure nothing was in it, and my daughter said his left hip are feels like it is on fire its so hot, so when we got home, I gave him one 200 mg ibuprofen wrapped in some cheese.
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?
Customer: no other health issues we know of
