Hi I believe my dog got into my other dogs Clavamox when I was gone. I got home and there was chewed up wrappers and pills on the floor. I think she ate 5-7 375mg pills. She is acting normal, do I need to take her to the vet? Or should I monitor her and watch. She is only 6 months old

One single dose of 5-7 pills of Clavamox 375mg is not going to be toxic to a 39 lbs dog; it is very like she will not develop any symptoms. If she does develop any symptoms it will be limited to mild vomiting or diarrhea. I would stop the cefpodoxime for the next 48 hours, make sure she drinks plenty of water. Then, keep an eye on her if she vomits or gets diarrhea this is what you can do:

1- Do not give things like Pepto Bismol or Imodium.

2- No food or water for 4-6 hours, need to give her gastrointestinal tract time to rest. Then, give her some water followed by a diet of rice (75%) with boiled boneless chicken or ground beef (25%) until the stool is back to normal then wean her back into her regular diet.

3- Supplement with a probiotic, these are friendly bacterias that help with regularity. You can buy this over the counter in any pet store.

4- If after doing the above you do not see improvement within 24 hours I would have her checked by your family veterinarian for a hands-on examination.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done.
