My cat ate a large amount of greenies accidentally and I am concerned. should I call an emergency vet center?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. The Expert will know if your cat will be able to digest that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your cat?

No, she's healthy otherwise. I'm not sure how many she ate, but it was quite a lot I think

Hi. My name is***** Thank you for your question. In a situation like this, it more than likely isn't an emergency situation or one that will have a bad outcome. At this time, she's just eaten a lot of something that is meant to be eaten. More than likely the biggest potential for an issue here is diarrhea due to eating so much of this. If she's not vomiting and seems to be resting comfortably, it would seem that time and letting her digest and pass the Greenies is what is needed here.

I gave my cat the NaturVet Quiet Moments Calming Aid chews, and I gave her the suggested amount on the container (2 chews), but she knocked the container over when I wasn't looking and started eating numerous amounts of them. I quickly picked it all up and took it away from her but I am very worried that she overdosed on them.
