Hello again

I have worked out an answer for you below.

1. There are two things in your favour here, one being that Scout is a larger dog, the second being that what she ate are really food supplements rather than drugs as such and they as such they will have a very high margin of safety in the dog.

2. The chances are that Scout will be just fine so all you need do for present is just to keep an eye on her, some dogs might perhaps have a mild episode of vomiting and / or diarrhoea but if this should occur { And it may well not } then in most cases it should soon pass on it's own or by simple measures such as you putting her on a reduced bland diet for a day or so.

3. But 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 if Scout's condition changes in any way or you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,

Dr Scott
