My dog just ate nearly a whole tablet of Levothyroxine 100

Customer Question

My dog just ate nearly a whole tablet of Levothyroxine 100 mcg. She is a Cavalier king charles spaniel and weighs 7 kg. I read that overdose is considered when taken 1mg/kg, so for her weight it should be 70 of those tablets, but I still worry...

Welcome and thanks for asking your question. I am sorry the expert you requested is not available. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian. I am happy to answer your question today. Friend, you are right we begin to get concern with doses of Levothyroxine above 1mg/kg. In this case your dog based on weight took a dose of 0.01mg/kg; no need to be concern, no symptoms expected. Please do not forget to rate my answer - I hope you found it to be excellent. If there’s more I can do, please use the reply tab and let me know. It’s my goal to provide you with excellent service." Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon!
