Please clarify if you're referring to the agricultural oil spray or the nutritional supplement produced by Standard Process. If the supplement, how many capsules do you think were ingested?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It's a natural suppliment. It's possible she ingested 100 pills
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 1 year ago.

I looked at the ingredient list and found nothing that would be toxic to her but I'm sure gastrointestinal distress will arise - inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea - from ingesting such an unusual "food". May I have an update on her, please?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
She had diarrhea when we got home. She did vomit a little once.she continues to have diarrhea. She is drinking water, and she ate a small portion of rice last night and this morning.

Her eating is a positive prognostic sign. You can avoid a vet visit as long as she continues to eat and stay hydrated by drinking well and not vomiting it back up.
