My 80lb dog is on carpofren and cephalexin. He is supposed to get 2 cephalexin and 1 carpofren every 12 hours. Tonight my husband and I got our wires crossed and both of us gave the dog his prescribed amount so essentially, he got a double dose. Will this make him sick?

Hello,
If you can call your vet right now and ask for their assistance. If they are closed call the pet poison helpline and they can instruct you on what the toxic levels are and what to do from here. I am not particularly concerned about the antibiotic but the carprofen might be an issue. I don’t know about your dogs health status or how much he has gotten in the last 24 hours. This is important to understanding how much is too much.
