I am sorry to hear about Elfie's dietary indiscretion. The most concerning thing that she ate are the bone maximizing pills but inorder to know for sure, I need to know that name of the active ingredient(s) in the pill or the mane of the medication. If you can give me this, I can look it up to see if this would potentially cause your dog a problem.

The EFA capsules, fish oil supplements, glucosamine and EFA are not likely to be an issue based on your dog's size.
