Hi,I'm Dr Scott. Welcome to JustAnswer, I am working on your question now, you can expect a written reply sometime within the next ten minutes or so.

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

Hello again,

I have worked out an answer for you below.

1. Please don't give this a second thought, this should not be toxic to Zoey and Patron so there are no special precautions you need take other than just keeping an eye on them. You see Glucosamine is more a food supplement than a drug and as such it has a very high margin of safety in the dog. I have know dogs swallow a great many of these pills and not show any serious toxicity related adverse effects. A few dogs might perhaps have a mild transient bout of vomiting and / or diarrhoea purely because of the sudden ingestion of an unusual food source, but that's about it.

2. But in any case I should be available online for you the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me in the very unlikely eventuality that either Zoey or Patron's condition changes in any way or you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,

Dr Scott
