It's relatively innocuous and might cause transient gastrointestinal distress - inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea - but not toxicity. The ingredients in Dasuquin - avocado/soybean unsaponifiables, decaffeinated tea, glucosamine hydrochloride and chondroitin sulfate are very well tolerated even when ingested in egregious amounts.

There's no reason to induce emesis or treat in any manner. I might have a word with Bernice, however. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
