I reviewed your prior post with Dr. Nimmo. It's important to recognize that there are no studies in dogs of overdosing of the ingredients in that product. What we know, however, is that saw palmetto when dosed at 3X recommended dosing in people was safe. We know that in people d-mannose can cause bloating and loose stools and that that sugar might cause kidney damage. Cranberry isn't toxic even when ingested in egregious amounts. As with ingesting anything unusual transient gastrointestinal distress in the form of inappetence, vomiting and/or diarrhea can arise but the likelihood of significant toxicity is unknown after 50-60 of those supplements are ingested. If you haven't indeuced emesis or Bailey hasn't self-decontaminated by vomiting, there's no reason to induce emesis at this time. May I have an update on Bailey, please?
