Hello. This is Dr. Linda. I hope I can help with your question today.

I would expect no adverse effects from Leeloo consuming the silicon supplements, as they are very safe for use in people.

I would not worry. Just be sure all prescription medications & other dangerous products are beyond the reach of a very curious & mischievious puppy.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns about Leeloo.

Thank you.
