Hello and thank you for using Just Answer. My name is***** am a veterinarian with over 30 years of experience, and I will do my best to help you. I am sorry to hear your dog may have gotten ibuprofen.

Some additional information may help me answer your questions.

How many pills could she have gotten? What does she weigh? How long has it been now since you induced vomiting?

This happened last night, not sure how many pills they ate. This morning they seem to be normal. What should I do next.

I tried giving them Pepcid, but they just spit it out.

Thanks for that information. If this was last night, has there been any vomiting? Are they eating?

If a dog gets enough of a dose of ibuprofen for their size you can see vomiting, diarrhea, stomach ulcers, and if they got a really large dose, there can be kidney damage. If you have not seen any vomiting or diarrhea, they may not have gotten enough of a dose to be sick from this.

I induced vomiting with peroxide 3%,
They tried to eat afterwards, I tried encouraging water. They ate through out the night, didn’t give them much, just in case. This morning they ate some too.

If they are eating, keeping food down, not vomiting, then they probably will be OK. If you are worried, you can take them to a veterinarian to have a blood test to check for kidney damage, but if they got enough to cause kidney damage I would expect you would be seeing vomiting in them.

It is good you induced vomiting; that may have helped if they got a lot of pills.
