My 50 lb dog...

My 50 lb dog ate 6 capsules containing vitamin D3 (10,000 IU/capsule) and K2 (100 mcg/capsule) - based on a couple of other articles on this site, it appears we don't need to induce vomiting - are we OK?

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

Shadow, 2.5 years

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

No Very healthy otherwise

She only ate the capsules about 15 minutes ago, no signs of any issues. She did not eat any of the bottle.

Boring

Nothing to worry about

They have to eat massive amounts to be an issue and even then with Vitamin D it is more the chronic exposure that is the issue

No treatment needed

I hope that helps!

Paul
