My 32 lb terrier mix ate 60 tAdvanced Calming chews sometime

Customer Question

My 32 lb terrier mix ate 60 tAdvanced Calming chews sometime in the night. Ingredients; valerian root 50 mg, organic chamomile 39 mg, organic passionflower 39 mg, Thiamine 30 mg, magnesium citrate 25 mg, GABA 25 mg, L-tryptophan 25 mg, organic ginger root 20 mg; inactive ingredients: flaxseed meal, garbanzo flour, palm oil, pea flour, turkey meal, sorbic acid, vegetable glycerin and veg. oil. He has already had a bowel movement today - looked normal, though slightly soft. I gave him approx 20 mls of H202 but he did not vomit.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Expert will know if the terrier will be able to digest that. What is the terrier's name and age?
Customer: Angus - age approximately 10 yrs (shelter adopted).
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Angus?
Customer: He has a cast-iron stomach. He has even eaten a half bag of chocolate kisses with no ill effects. He is acting pretty normal - not lethargic, nor is he agitated.

Thankfully, there's nothing toxic in that product even when ingested in excess. Passion flower could potentially cause nausea and vomiting. It's too late to induce emesis but I don't believe it's necessary to do so. Any untoward symptoms that arose would be treated supportively and symptomatically. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
