Hi. My name is***** Thank you for your question. How long ago did Fannie eat this single dose of Vytorin? How is she acting at this time?

Ok. I did some research on this and found that a single dose of 10/20 mg in this dog should not be a problem. Maybe gi effects at most. More than likely nothing will happen from this. There really isn't any need to do any treatments at this time for this. Basically treatment of any GI signs that arise would be needed. I would continue to treat her other conditions as you are and not change anything.

thank you so much. have a good night

I will. I hope all goes well there! Tell Fannie to only take her own medications. Take care.

I'm just following up on our conversation about your pet. How is everything going?
