Idk what my phone did to screw up this post. It butchered it Lol.

As of now she gets royal can in GSD which she's been doing well on. But in the past I've tried prescription diet I've tried blue buffalo one made her sick and the other gave her bad bad diarrhea. When I got her from her previous she was in some dollar general brand stuff. Her tummy is so sensitive. So I don't wander to far from what works for her. But have been looking for healthier solutions for her.

jocoyn I have never found a reason to give my dogs vitamins in addition to what is in the dog food or regularly take vitamins (except for those which may become deficient, like B12 as I get older). The xylitol warning is a good one though.

For your information Vitamin C is water soluble so is passed in a dogs urine. That's why it is so good at cleaning the Bladder etc and treating UTI's. This makes it virtually impossible to actually cause any damage. A sign of over doing the Vit C is diarrhea. I would think many grams need to be ingested to cause this.

I've given plenty of it to my dogs without any problem. I use a high quality powdered form.
No it wasn't vitamin c that caused it. Hes still waiting on more test results. I'm stuck on this case because whatever it was hit her dog like a freight train.

GatorBytes Maybe it was a flinstone vitamin or some gummy brand that contained Xylitol.

Edit: I see you mention vit. C. again, some chewable brands (big pharma made) may have Xylitol (artificial sweetener) in it.

Do you agree with that. Did the 'doctor' agree with the lady or suspect something else which 'poisoned' the dog?

Did a vitamin tablet really poison a dog?

Did it die from it?

What vitamin are you talking about?

Did it eat one dose or many doses?
She said it ate 1 vitamin tablet and then a few days later her dog started going into organ failure. The Dr suspects the dog got into something life threatening.

I agree with him. I fully trust this Dr. But she swore up and down that it was the vitamin it was vitamin c.

The dog is actually still alive. Hrs on fluids. And blood work proved there was no high elevation in vitamin c to poison it.

High doses of vitamins can be highly unhealthy or life theathening. But that's HIGH doses.
