I am sorry to hear you are worried about your Beagle. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

It will not hurt him to get 300 mg of doxycycline. If he took it on an empty stomach, he might vomit; doxycycline is irritating to an empty stomach.

Let me know what else I can help with or answer.

Thank you she already had her dinner, and she stole it right out of my hand when I was giving it to my lab. She thinks she is missing out on a treat. Needed to make sure cause I wasn't sure if I could get my vet tonight.

She should be fine. Let me know how she is doing and if I can answer anything else.

Kindly consider rating my answer (always appreciated!); you can still get back to me with questions and updates.
