Hello I m sorry to hear Sugarbehr has you worried. My name is ***** ***** I have been a veterinary nurse for 26 years. I would be happy to help
Prevacid is a drug that we do use in dogs at a dose of 0.5-1mg per pound of body weight every 24 hours.
The 15 mgs would be well within the recommended dosing for Sugarbehr so there would be no concerns regarding toxicity.
He should be just fine. This is also a medication that can be given with the drugs used to treat Cushings so there would be no concerns in that area if he is on medications.
Sugarbehr should be just fine. I hope this helps ease your mind. Please reply back if you have additional questions and I will be happy to continue.
