Hello again and thanks for waiting. I have worked out an answer for you below ... 1. Vita chews for dogs LINK are very non toxic so the chances are that if Sassy only ate a few, say six or less that you will not see any symptoms and she will be just fine. You may want to give her a little milk at present just to help settle her stomach. 2. Of course if any odd symptoms do appear then you should have her checked over by your vet without delay, but this would be very unlikely. 2. However if you fail to induce vomiting or if any odd symptoms occur then you should have your dog checked over by a vet without delay. In your case expected side effects would include : vomiting, diarrhoea, lethargy, depression and inccordination. I hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you.
