This is a great question but on an occasional basis this should be just fine. I too have a dog with this condition and when I get home late at night sometimes I don't wait the allotted time to feed her (they are big beggars!) and she has no ill effects. It is just realistic that sometimes it is missed and often they go months before a diagnosis and do recover well when re administered

I hope this makes sense but please let me know if you have any additional questions tonight!
