What special precautions are there?
This medication has not been studied for safe use in breeding, lactating, or pregnant dogs. Dogs with cardiac illness and hypothyroidism should be monitored vigilantly to ensure that the correct dosage is established. Veterinarians often find it prudent to adjust these dogs' dosages of cardiac medication or levothyroxine sodium, depending on the dog's clinical response. Never administer to a dog with thyrotoxicosis or uncontrolled adrenal insufficiency. If accidental ingestion occurs, treatment should take place immediately. Keep the product label on hand when seeking treatment. Keep out of reach of children. Thoroughly wash your hands after handling. After excess in-utero thyroid hormone exposure, the offspring of humans and rodents have developed hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid axis dysfunction and defects in the morphological thyroid gland.
