Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand Atilla may have swallowed 750 mg of a Metformin tablet. I am sorry to hear about what may have happened. Do you have any idea about how long ago this may have occurred, or is it just speculation at this point because you can not find the pill?
