Thank you very much

Hello Heather,

Thanks for requesting me and sorry for the late reply, we are in very different time zones and I have just logged in first thing this morning and found your question.

1. Good news!. This drug is often prescribed for dogs { Levothyroxine } and my experience is that 88 mcg is not going to have any adverse effects on a 60 pound dog if given on a one off basis. There are no special measures you need take, Izzy will be just fine.

I hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you.

Regards,

Dr Scott
