Customer Question
I gave 2...

I gave 2 (1.14 mg) ( instead of 1) flea chewable to our 48 lb dog) she seems to be fine! Do I wait for more than a month to give her another one.. She doesn't have fleas!

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What sort of animal are we talking about?

Greater Swiss Mountain dog

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the Veterinarian. What is the dog's name?

Leisel

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Leisel?

No, just examined and in excellent health

Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help with this concern about Leisel.

I'd be surprised if you noticed any unusual reactions from her being given two pills since there's such a large margin of safety with these oral products.

But there won't be an increased residual effect from having done so; therefore, her next dose will be due 30 days from when you gave her the two pills.

I hope this helps, Deb
