Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I see you have a question about your dog eating your kitty's medication? Can you tell me what the active ingredient listed on the label is, how many mg the tablet is, and the size of your dog?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It was drontal for cats
Expert:  Jess K replied 1 year ago.

Yes, do you have the package? Just need to know the size of the tablet in mg and the size of your dog.

Expert:  Jess K replied 1 year ago.

If you have the packaging, there should be somewhere on the label that lists the active ingredients and the size in mg (likely it is praziquantel and pyrantel).

18mg tablet . my dog is about 8 lbs
Expert:  Jess K replied 1 year ago.

Ok. Thank you for the information. If your dog ate one of these tablets, she/he should not suffer any adverse effects, as it will still be within a safe dosing range for your dog and this drug is safe for dogs as well as for cats.
