Hello and welcome, I am Dr. B and would like to help you today.

We would not be overly worried here. While this cause some short term stomach upset, as this is a water soluble vitamin, her body will pass any excess in her urine. So we'd just need to keep an eye for the next 24 hours and if we see any stomach upset, then a light diet (ie chicken and rice) can be offered to soothe her stomach and keep her settled.

Please take care,

Dr. B
