Hi there

How much does Molly weigh and how much Comfortis did she get and how long ago?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Molly weighs approx. 15 pounds and was given a dose for a 40 - 60 pound dog. She was given this dose approx. 30 minutes ago
Expert:  Denise Colgrove replied 6 years ago.
You do not have to worry. She may throw up but that is about all. You could make her throw up by giving her a teaspoonfull of hydrogen peroxide by mouth. But I could not find anything that said this was a dangerous situation. One person gave double the dose for 3 months with no side effects. It is a relatively new formulation but is very safe.

Expert:  Denise Colgrove replied 6 years ago.
