My dog ate one...

My dog ate one sublingual 500 mcg vitamin B12 tablet sometime in the last hour. He is 4 years old and weighs 23lbs.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. The Expert will know if your dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name?

Rufus

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Rufus?

He is healthy, although I think he cut his gums trying to open another supplement bottle.

Friend, 500mcg of Vitamin B12 will not be toxic for Rufus; this is a water soluble vitamin any excess he will urinate it. No symptoms.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service. If you have any follow-up questions don't hesitate to ask. If finished, please take a moment to rate my service. See you again soon!
