    Puppy ate a calcium pill

    Hi All!!

    My 8 month old pup, miss Anabelle, got one of my calcium, magnesium vit D pills.....man she is quick, and I could not get her to trade with me...........it is a 400 mg cal., 266 IU vit D, and 133 mg of magnesium....it also has Boron in it......I don't think it will hurt her.....but not sure.....I thought I would ask you all.....or should I just call the emergency vets? Thank-You!!

    I just saw this...why don't you call the emergency clinic and ask them what they think? I was going to suggest shooting some hydrogen peroxide down her throat to induce vomiting, but it has probably passed into her stomach by now.

    Thanks for answering..:-)

    Yeah, she is a quick one.....she knows *leave it*, but a turned away for a durn second and she jumped one the chair to the table where I was eating and had my vitiamin there.....she didn't get the vit C.....that one and the calcium was the only two left....and she gulped it....

    I am calling just to see what they say.....the pill is a liquid inside, so it got in her quick I asume......she just ate now, and seems okay....so far....

    Thanks!

    There's not enough of anything in that pill to cause trouble. Those are extremely low doses. She should be fine.
