Customer Question

My 8lb Pomeranian is on enalapril, vetmedin and Salix for a heart condition. My 40 lbs dog swooped in and ate the treat with the pills in it. Should I be concerned?

Hello,

I am sorry to hear you are worried about what happened with your dogs. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

It should not do any harm to a 40 pound dog getting a dose of these three medications meant for an 8 pound dog. The Salix may cause him to drink and urinate more today, but that should be all I would expect.

Is this helpful? Let me know if I can answer anything else.
