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.

More research, he should be fine. No need to go in to induce vomiting.
I was in such a hurry to get you an answer, I did not introduce myself! I am a veterinarian with 30 years experience. Let me know what else I can help with or answer.
