Customer Question

Hello, my 9-lb Pomeranian just ate a 25mg Lutein/5mg Zeaxanthin soft gel vitamin tablet. Will this pass naturally or do indeed to take him to the animal ER to induce vomiting.

Hello, I am sorry to hear about what happened to your Pom. Give me a moment to look this up. I don't think lutein is toxic, but I need to some research.

So far it appears to be safe. I will keep looking
Expert:  Rebecca replied 2 years ago.
More research, he should be fine. No need to go in to induce vomiting.
