Hello, my name is***** and I have over 20 years of experience as a veterinarian. I am sorry to hear that your fellow ingested about 30 Hyland's Teething tablets.This is a homeopathic mix of Calcarea Phosphorica, Chamomilla, Coffea Cruda, Magnesia Phosphorica, Rheum, Silicea, and Belladonna.The only one of these homeopathics that would be of concern would be Belladonna. This can be toxic in high enough quantities leading to dry mouth, drooling, dilated pupils, slowed gastrointestinal movements, inability to urinate, a fast, irregular heart rate then very slow heart rate, tremors, convulsions and coma, and in some cases death. But the quantity in these tablets is so low, 0.0000000000003% Belladonna alkaloids as stated on the label, which means that each complete teething tablet contains only approximately 0.0000000000002 mg of Belladonna alkaloids, that it isn't in large enough quantities to affect your pup.Certainly if your pup starts drooling or excessively lip licking, has very dilated pupils, or is having trouble passing urine or has a seizure then he needs to be seen by a veterinarian on an emergency basis, but this is unlikely to occur.Please let me know if you have any further questions
