Customer Question
Good Morning. I accidentally...

Good Morning. I accidentally gave the Denamarin 425 mg pill to my 16 lb nearly 18 year old dog who is not on Denamarin.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the matter with the dog?

Nothing yet. I accidentally gave my 18 year old dog his brothers 425 mg Denamarin med.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Where does the dog seem to hurt?

The 18 year old dog weighs 16 lbs

Veterinarian's Assistant: Can you see anything that looks wrong or different?

His name is***** seems fine. No pain, I fed him so the denamarin would absorb as well

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Billy?

Billy is diabetic. He had his insulin. He is doing what he normally dies after breakfast. Resting

I am sorry to hear this happened. Unfortunately mix ups like this happen quite often.

There is good news here though. Even though this dose is much higher than what a dog his size should get, this supplement will not cause any harm to the body as far as any liver, kidney, or other organ damage. It should go through the body without any long term damage. You may see a little upset stomach, such as vomiting, in the first 24 hours after ingestion of the medicine. However, it should improve with time and it is unlikely you will even see that. Denamarin is a very safe medication/supplement to give even at high doses like that. Billy should be just fine. If you see any vomiting, hold off on any food for 12 hours, then give a bland diet such as boiled chicken and rice as well as 5mg of pepcid AC (famotidine) and he should be good. The denamarin will not affect his insulin at all.

So the short answer here is the diabetes will not be affected, he may have a little bit of upset stomach, but he should be just fine.
