Customer Question
We found my bottle...

We found my bottle of vitamin D3 on the floor with maybe 1 or 2 missing and I have 2 chihuahua’s. Just wondering if I need to be concerned or not. They are 5,000iu each

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the matter with the dog?

Nothing at the moment but not sure if it’s going to hurt him

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

No. He’s about 10 lbs. nothing was chewed on either.

Friend, 5,000 or 10,000 IU of Vitamin D3 not likely to be life-threatening to a 10 lbs dog; he will be fine. No need to worry.

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 it is how I get compensated. See you again soon!
