Hi BlueGuy! Welcome to this site! Nice to meet you!
I'm unfamiliar with Sotalol with dogs, however, I did have to use some "people" drugs like Prednisone as well as veterinarian drugs at the same time in my dog for a brain tumour. Later, I found out that the prednisone was cheaper at my own pharmacy than buying it at my vet's office. That may be a good question for you to ask: "Is it the same as the human dosage from my own pharmacy? Is it cheaper? Can I use that instead?" Also, one of my dog's drugs wasn't commonly used (even by my pharmacy) so it was a special order that took time before it reached me.
Here's a website that may be helpful to you (I'm not recommending it but I only know about it, I've never used its services, it's too late for my usage now, :( I actually wish I had known before): DogJustAnswer.com
They have "live" vets that you can chat with online.
Your community may also have a phone number for you to call with veterinary questions like yours. :)
Please "friend" me if you like, BlueGuy. I'd certainly love to find out how things progress with your beloved pet!
Good luck! All the best to you all! from Wendy :)
