I accidently gave my dog 20 mg of enalapril rather than 10mg. Will he be ok?


This is Dr.Christian. How much does your dog weigh? Did he get a dose this morning too or do you give it once a day?

Customer: replied 8 years ago.

He weighs 80 lbs. He gets 10 mg in the morning and 10 mg in the evening...I gave him 10mg this morning and accidently gave him 20mg this evening. He gets enalapril and lasiks together. So I gave him 2 of one and not the other by accident.



You are welcome. He is a big dog and 20mg is well within normal dose ranges for a dog his size so he should be just fine. You can even give him his normal dosage tomorrow morning. If you have more questions please let me know.
