Do you know how many he ate?

2to 3
Expert:  Dr. Jo replied 4 months ago.

Okay. I have some good news for you. This type of exposure isn't likely to cause any problems at all. This is a relatively small, one-time dose and is not at all likely to be toxic.

Expert:  Dr. Jo replied 4 months ago.

Even a large ingestion (like the whole bottle) isn't likely to do anything more than cause some vomiting.

There is no reason to take any action. This shouldn't cause any problem for Bullet.

Is there anything else I can help you with today?
