This is Dr. David

your synthroid is 75 mcg or micrograms, not milligrams.

75 mcg is 0.075 mg

your dogs pills are .8 mg milligrams

you should let your doctor know you took your dog's thyroid hormone pills.

most likely your doctor will tell you not to take your thyroid hormone pills for about 10 days and then resume them like normal.

you will be completely fine.

thyroid hormone is a slow acting hormone and changes to your thyroid hormone levels don't act quickly.

let me know if you have other questions.

if done for now, please leave positive rating of 3-5 stars so I can get credit for helping you today
