This forum has changed with our resident vet moving on but a lot of good information is available within the posts so we have changed it to a board on general animal health and advice. We have also moved it out of the donor forum area so the information is available to everyone.

Dog got in the first aid kit.
So the dog got into the first aid kit and there are ibuprofen tablets scattered about. Not sure how many he ate. Trying to get a hold of the vet now. Any thoughts on what to do for future reference?
