Customer Question
I accidently gave my...

I accidently gave my 92 lb. lab 2 Heartgard Plus chewable tablets by mistake. She should have only gotten 1 for a 51 - 100 lb. dog.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What seems to be the problem with the lab?

None yet, but I gave he 2 Heartgard Plus chewable tablet instead of 1.

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

She doesn't hurt. Did I give her an overdose?

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. No obvious pain. What is the lab's name?
