Hello again

I have worked out an answer for you below.

1. If this is likely to have occurred within the last hour then you may want to induce vomiting to recover the Dasuquin just as a precaution. For the sake of speed I will give you a link on how to do this best. : LINK

2. But the good news is that Glucosamine and the other ingredients of Dasuquin are more of a food supplement than a drug and as such have a very high margin of safety in the dog , in my experience even if you do not induce vomiting then all you would be likely to see in your dog's situation { If anything } would be a mild transient bout of vomiting and / or diarrhoea and that long term effects would be very unusual indeed.

3. In any case I should be available online for you the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me in the unlikely event that any serious symptoms occur or you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,

Dr Scott
