One of my two...

One of my two beagles may have ingested a Garcinia cambogia 2000mg tablet, 30 minutes ago. They weigh 18.8 and 22.8 pounds.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if the beagle will be able to digest that. What is the beagle's name and age?

Beanie 8.5 years, Polly 3 years

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the beagle's name?

Sorry, its a 1000mg, 60% hydroxycitric acid = 600 mg)

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the beagle?

No they're both in great health, up to date on vaccinations, no seizures noted, no heart disease.

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

I am sorry to hear you are concerned about Beanie and Polly. I have not heard of this, so I did some research. One single 2000 mg pill for either dog should not be a problem. I read about a dog that ate a whole bottle, and was OK!

I see it was only a 1000 mg pill, better still.
