My 80 lb dog ate 10 coldeeze

Customer Question

my 80 lb dog ate 10 coldeeze
Submitted: 2 years ago.
Category: Dog
Expert:  Dr. Michael Salkin replied 2 years ago.
The 10 Coldeeze contained a total of 133 mg of zinc - a clinically insignificant amount for an 80 lb dog. In studies concerning zinc, doses of 100 mg/lb of body weight were well-tolerated. Charlie might experience a bit of GI distress - inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea - from ingesting such an unusual "food" but he wasn't intoxicated by zinc. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

I'm just following up on our conversation about Charlie. How is everything going?
