Q. My 40 pound dog ingested 400mg of ibupfin

A. Take her to your veterinarian as soon as possible to have her checked. Potentially gastric decontamination ( possible lavage and activated charcoal) and supportive treatment (fluid therapy) may be needed. The signs of intoxication may come up in n after 24-48hrs so I would suggest to take her immediately.
