Q. My pit bull accidentally ate 2 of my advil pm and I'm freaking out will he be ok? He is sleeping now but heart rate seems faster than normal.
A. The diphenhydramine in the Advil PM is safe. The ibuprofen may cause GI upset, stomach ulcers or kidney damage. If it has been less than 90 minutes, seek veterinary attention immediately. Your vet or a vet at the local veterinary ER can induce vomiting and administer activated charcoal, antacids and stomach protectants. If this is not possible, call the vet clinic and ask about inducing vomiting at home. You may need to have blood work done to monitor kidney function to determine if there was any damage.
