My dog ate 200 leg fish oil capsules, 100mg each.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Hello and welcome,

This is just a quick note to let you know that I am locked on to your question and am working on it now.

My name is***** and I am a small animal vet with many years experience and rest assured I will do my best to answer your question to your satisfaction today. However before I can start I need a little more information to make things clearer for me so could you please answer the following :

1. How long ago did this happen { how many minutes or hours ago } ?

2. How much does your dog weigh { In pounds } ?

3. Please look at the container and tell if this was plain fish oil or were there vitamins of any sort added?

You can then expect a written reply sometime within the next five to ten minutes or so. We also have the option to talk things over by telephone or via an internet service such as Skype if this is more convenient for you. Please get back to me if this is more suitable for you. { There is a small extra charge for phone calls }

Regards,

Dr Scott
