Fortunately, one 10mg dose of Vetoryl will not harm Gus. It could upset his stomach, but even that is unlikely. If he happens to throw up, just hold his food and water for several hours so that his stomach can settle down before he eats or drinks again. Otherwise, there is nothing you need to do.

Please realize that the Gus suffers from
Liver cancer. Is that a factor?

Yes, I'm aware. The vetoryl still won't be a problem. That's too bad that he has cancer. How has he been doing overall?
