ok. please hurry.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 10 months ago

There's so little of the active thyroid hormone in your pills, that even 30 x 120 mg won't affect Heidi. 3,600 mg of your pills contains 2.3 mg of the active hormone for dogs. That about 3X what I might dose Heidi - an insignificant one-time overdose. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns.

As with ingesting anything unusual transient gastrointestinal distress in the form of inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea can arise but Heidi wasn't intoxicated and will remain safe.
