Because CoQ 10 is naturally occurring in the body there's no risk of toxicity even if ingested in excess. However, as with ingesting anything unusual transient gastrointestinal distress in the form of inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea can arise but your dog wasn't intoxicated. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns.
