Hi, I'm not finding any reports in dogs of ever overdosing on this product. Can you tell me how much zinc she would have ingested?

The package doesn't say.

Other ingredients are: Bryonia, Gelsemium Sempervirens, Sambucus Nigra (elderberry) Sulphur and Zincum Gluconate
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
It's a homeopathic product, generally taken in small doses to stimulate the body's healing response.

Okay, it's doubtful that this would be a big problem in such a large dog. But, like I said there is no data on the product that I can find. With large amounts of any products, you could see diarrhea and stomach upset for 24 hours or so.

Often times, Animal Poison Control will have data on commercial products, even products like thsi. You can give them a call if you like to see if they have any information (they will charge you though). They're number is(###) ###-####
