Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!

Can you please tell me how long ago this was ingested and how much your dog weighs?

Expert:  Dr. Altman replied 1 year ago.

And this is 75 mcg not mg correct? This is the common formulation for this medication

Expert:  Dr. Altman replied 1 year ago.

75 mcg= 0.075 mg is a very low dose so I do not expect to see any issues with this ingestion. You may see mild gi upset but otherwise it will not be toxic regardless of your dog's weight at this ingestion dose so you should be just fine

As a precaution you can give white rice and lean boiled meat such as chicken as meals for 24 hours to minimize loose stools but again I don't think there will be any issues

Please let me know how else I can assist you both today
