Please take them, just to be safe. We nearly lost Luka last month from liver failure after he ingested something, though at the time we did not know he had gotten into something toxic. If we had, we would have gone in that second.
A few days went by and we knew he was "off" but we did not think it was serious and hoped his "blah" would pass, but it didn't. I finally took him in even though he just seemed quiet... When his bloodwork was in we found out he was in almost total liver failure. It was an awful moment, and terrifying, too. He had been slowly dying and we had NO idea. But liver failure due to toxic ingestion can be stopped and supportive care as early as possible is the best way to combat it. Our Luka survived, thank god, but it was terribly close and I would not wish the experience on anyone... had we waited one more day we might not have him with us today.
Take them in. Please. Waiting is just not worth it when the liver could be compromised.
