Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help you today.

Hopefully, you'll see my response before you have to leave for church.

I can understand your concern for your dog but happy to reassure you that he will be fine. The dosage amount for thyroid replacement drugs in dogs is much higher than it is for humans...one of the few times that this is the case.

The normal dose for a dog this size would be 300 mcg so clearly he didn't come close to ingesting this amount of drug.

He should be just fine. Deb
