Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you today! Please give me a few moments to respond and I will be back momentarily!

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

The maximum safe level of vitamin D is 10000 IU/kg which means that your dog which weighs 9 pounds (4.1 kg) could take up to 41000 IU = 41 of these 1000 iu tablets. Beyond that is overdose.

So I would not expect to see any ill effects from this ingestion and she should be just fine

Please let me know how else I can assist you both today
