Please don't give it a second thought. A 16 lb dog would need to ingest nearly 30,000 IU of cholecalciferol - the most common form of vitamin D3 - to become intoxicated (renal failure). There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
