Hi, I'm Dr. Peter. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.

Expert:  Dr. Peter replied 8 months ago.

Friend, Vitamin D3 toxicity in dogs is very dependent on the amount and weight of the patient. We get concern with doses above 100mcg/kg, in this case, based on weight your dog took a dose of 13.8mcg/kg, this will not be toxic for her; she will be fine.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done.
