Post: Vitamin A Toxicity?
Posted by MKay on 1/17/06
I just received a call from friends. Their parrot
swallowed one of the owner's vitam A pills. I asked the
dosage, she said it's 10 thousand units per capsule. I
realize vitam A is fat soluble, and that taken in excess
can cause toxicity. Does anyone know if one capsule will
be damaging to a parrot? It's a caique; I believe it's
7yrs old, eating sweet potatoes now; they said it happened
a very short while ago. They're calling the vet--just
wonder if I'd get a quick response here?
