How much do they weigh? The bolus is slow release so chances are they will be ok. Dose is 1 gram per 22 pounds. So 2 grams is for 44 pounds.

They are small. Two of them probably weigh 12-15lbs and the other maybe 10lbs. I did open the capsules and made a “cookie” for them to take it with. I’m so afraid I messed up.

It often takes a build up of copper to cause toxicity. My gut is saying they should be ok but that Is not much assurance I'm sure. Some find feeding Ammonium Molybdate and sodium sulfate to reduce the absorption of copper helps. I would call your vet tomorrow and see his thoughts.

Yes weighing them might show them to be a bit more hefty. 🤞
