Thank you for using Just Answer. My name is Rebecca; I am a veterinarian. Please give me a moment to type my answer.

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

I am sorry you are concerned about your dog. If she just held the pill in her mouth and then spit it out, she should be fine. Dogs are given ALC and CLA, these ingredients are not dangerous.

Please let me know if this is helpful and if you have any other questions.

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

I see a chewed red capsule; it looks like she got little or none of the insides. I can't tell from the capsule what it is, but if the ingredients are ALC and CLA she should be fine.

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

Yes, these ingredients are safe. We give them to dogs.

Please let me know if is this helpful! Glad you feel better!
