Finasteride? I might dose a dog with as much as 5 mg and so Zoey will remain safe. Gastrointestinal effects are possible - inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

A little piece of the pill
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 11 months ago

Thank you! Even egregious one-time doses of progesterone are of no significance in dogs. Don't give it a second thought. Zoey will remain unaffected. Please continue our conversation if you wish.
