Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

Good news, if she ate these last weekend then we'd not be worried here. Signs we may have seen from this (usually GI upset, vomiting, appetite loss, or diarrhea) would have appeared within a few hours after she ate these. And as long as she doesn't do this frequently, then most of our vitamins and minerals should be safe in a one-off dose. The only one I would watch for was if she got a large dose of Vitamin D. Most of the time this just causes GI upset, but on rare occasions with very high doses it can affect clotting of the blood. That said, we'd expect her to have pale gums, lethargy, weakness, increased breathing rate, and collapse. So, as long as we aren't seeing those for Abby, we'd not be worried about this ingestion but just plan to keep these well out of reach in the future.

Please take care,

Dr. B.
