It's best to induce emesis because overdose of that vitamin D analogue can result in hypercalcemia, hypercalciuria, and hyperphosphatemia. Dose Daisy with 25 mL (one measuring tablespoon + 2 measuring teaspoons) of 3% hydrogen peroxide by means of a small poultry baster plced between her cheek teeth and cheek. She should vomit within 15 minutes. If not, please repeat the same dose. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
