Hello XXXXX Is it a 5mg or a 0.5mg soloxine tablet? Is it for dogs or a human?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.

It is for another dog.

Ok great It's probably a 0.5mg soloxine tablet and should cause absolutely no problems for your dog. Just to be safe you can give your dog 2 teaspoons of 3% hydrogen peroxide to make him vomit and get rid of the pill. Again soloxine should not harm your dog in any way.
