Ask a Dog Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello and welcome ..My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am an experienced small animal veterinary surgeon, I will be very pleased to work with you today and will try my best to answer your question to your satisfaction.
Neotigason capsules contain the active ingredient acitretin, which is a type of medicine known as a retinoid. These have have a structure similar to vitamin A and are not that toxic to dogs
In one study I have read up on dogs were given 30 mg / kg fro more than a year without major side efects
Given the size of your dog I do not think that this incident on a one off basis is going to affect your dog adversely
All you need do is to keep an eye on Rolo just in case and of course contact a vet without delay if any odd symptoms arise but this would be very unlikely
I think that is your question covered, can I help you further ...?
He is a typical Lab and will eat anythining that stops still long enough. I will keep an eye on him.
That's Labs for you ... :-)
Thank you Scott, you ave been very helpful.
No problem, very glad to have advised you ...
I will rate you now, goodbye.
thanks for getting back to me.
Rolo is fine, however after walks yesterday morning I notice his eyes swelling up and red. It may have been something from the walk , but i took him to the Vets last night and they gave him an injection plus some drops and an anti scratch collar. I have to take him back tonight but he seems a lot better. the collar stayed on for about 5 minutes, and trying to put drops in his eyes at 5.30am this morning was like wrestling with a bull elephant as I am sure you know.
Below is the url for Rolo's facebook page so you can see him if you wish.
