Customer Question

My 15 lb Havanese ate 1 coq10 300 mg. should I do anything?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Yoshi. He's 2 years old
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Yoshio?
Customer: No. Perfectly healthy
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

You're speaking with Dr. Michael Salkin. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm currently typing up my reply.

No coenzyme Q10 side effects have been produced in studies done on dogs taking this supplement. Please check if your supplement also contains xylitol - a substitute sugar which can be toxic to dogs.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
No it does not contain that
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Thank you for your help.
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 10 months ago.

Thank goodness. Don't give the Q10 another thought. Far, far more than 300 mg was given to dogs in studies and no adverse effects were seen.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Whew! Good night
