My puppy (13 lbs, 12 weeks) just ate two of my thyroid pills, 1 gr each... will it hurt her?

Dr. Louis Gotthelf :

Hi. I'm Dr. Gotthelf. I have been a vet for 33 years and I would like to use my experience to help you with your pet's medical problem.

Dr. Louis Gotthelf :

No that will not hurt the puppy. Thyroid replacement therapy takes some time to work so if only a couple of pills were eaten only one time the hormone will be metabolized and excreted pretty rapidly.


thanks very much


the medicine was armor thyroid 1gr


so it sounds like with only two pills eaten there is nothing to worry about...
