• Hello, about less than 15 mins ago; my 4 month old, 10 lb puppy ate a piece of Levothyroxine sodium 100mcg (yellow & round). She has an appointment tomorrow afternoon, should I wait until then to bring her to the vet or is this something that cannot wait. Will she be ok?

    Hi Lashann,
    I recommend that you call and talk to your local veterinarian about this question. While levothyroxine is relatively safe in dogs there are some concerns that this could cause a spike in thyroid levels which can cause illness. The risk of this will depend on the weight, breed, age, and overall health of your pet. Your vet knows your pet and they can give you the best advice on if she needs to be seen sooner than tomorrow. If you see any signs like vomiting, diarrhea, hyperactivity or lethargy you should take her into see a veterinarian as soon as possible.

Need more information or advice?
