Customer Question

My grown daughters 14 mo old lab ate most of a bottle of 200IU vitamin d pills this AM
She lives in northern Wisconsin and its Sunday but she found vet open in GreenBay -about 100 miles away. She immediately drove there and they took a blood test which was normal. They gave her something to put in his food and told her to have his blood tested every day for the next 4 days. What do you feel is the outlook for this dog? She loves him with all her heart and is just going to pieces. I wish he was on an IV now, or am I wrong? Please prepare us for what's ahead. Thank you so much. Marlene
