Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello, my name is***** and I have over 20 years of experience as a veterinarian. I understand that you are concerned about Zoey eating a 10mg Zocor tablet.
Zocor is the trade name for the generic cholesterol lowering drug simvastatin.
This particular drug is in the "statin" class of drugs, which as a class are not considered highly toxic drugs in dogs and have few side effects when accidentally ingested. They work by interfering with the absorption of fats, particularly low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, triglycerides, and total cholesterol
You may see some loose stools for the next couple of days, but that should be the extent of it.
Please let me know if you have any further questions.
Hello, I wanted to make sure that you didn't have any further questions for me, and I'd like to know how things turned out for your pup. If you could give me an update that would be great, thank you, ***** *****
