calcipotriol/calcipotriene (Dovonex)

Dovonex cream/ ointment for psoriasis. This probably isn't too common because it's not something everyone would have at home but it is highly toxic to dogs.
Completely ashamed about this but when Millie was a pup she chewed a tube of my cream that had fallen off the table. She hadn't eaten much of it and had been sick but still spent 5 days in the vets getting treatment that luckily worked but the vet couldnt say if there would be long term effects from it. Most of the other cases I read the dog wasn't so lucky.

I hope the link worked, im not very good at this posting links and stuff lol x

The link works and thank you for it.

It seems that there are so many seemingly innocuous substances that are dangerous to our dogs, and we don't always know about them so it is good when they are brought to our attention.

You learned the hard way and no shame to you - who would have thought? Thank heavens Millie was lucky.

We were very lucky with her. I think getting her to the vet within a couple of hours of her eating it helped.

Good for you, not everyone would have done this. If the dog had been sick the temptation would be to assume that the noxious (not that you would have known that at the time) substance had been rejected by the dog's system.
