Hello again

I have worked out an answer for you below.

1. Good news, a one time ingestion in a dog this size is not likely to cause any toxic effects { Assuming she did not actually eat the tube as well }

2. There are no special measure you need take in this sort of situation, just make sure she has access to water at all times as she may be a bit more thirsty and some dogs may have a brief minor transient bout of vomiting and/ or diarrhoea but that's about it.

3. But in any case I should be available online for you the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me if your dog's condition changes in any way or you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,

Dr Scott

No problem with the phone call, I am sure we can handle this just by chatting, your dog is in no danger because we routinely give dog's steroids orally in tablet form at much higher concentrations than will be in your tube of cream.
