Hello there. I am sorry to hear about Belle and her double dose of thyroid medications. I am happy to help you this evening. A one time double dose of a thyroid medication will not cause any problems. She will be perfectly fine and will not show any negative side effects. You will want to go ahead and give her next scheduled dose as prescribed. You can give her food and water like normal. No concerns. Luckily this medication is really safe and a one time dosing like this will cause no problems.

I hope this helps and I hope this makes sense. Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions or concerns. I would be happy to help. Please do not forget to rate my response so I receive credit for my time. Thank you
