My puppy (13 lbs, 12 weeks) just ate two of my thyroid pills, 1 gr each... will it hurt her?

Dr. Louis Gotthelf :

Hi. I'm Dr. Gotthelf. I have been a vet for 33 years and I would like to use my experience to help you with your pet's medical problem.

Dr. Louis Gotthelf :

No that will not hurt the puppy. Thyroid replacement therapy takes some time to work so if only a couple of pills were eaten only one time the hormone will be metabolized and excreted pretty rapidly.

Customer:

thanks very much

Customer:

the medicine was armor thyroid 1gr

Customer:

so it sounds like with only two pills eaten there is nothing to worry about...
