I don't see vitamin D3 on the ingredient list so that removes the most worrisome of the supplements when ingested in excess however ingesting 250 pills can't be good for him even if they only cause gastrointestinal distress which I would expect after his ingesting such a large amount of an unusual "food". If he ingested these within 2 hours, I would induce emesis with 3% hydrogen peroxide dosed at 5 mL (one measuring teaspoon) per 5 lbs of body weight with a small poultry baster placed between his cheek teeth and cheek. He should vomit within 15 minutes. If not, the same dose should be readministered. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
