Q. I think my 15 week old kitten ate one of my birth control pills. I haven't been able to find it so I'm sure he ate it. Will this harm him?
A. If it was just one pill, then it may cause a little GI upset, but other than that you shouldn't see any toxic signs. Monitor for vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy or loss of appetite. If you want to be sure, call the local animal poison control hotline. Have the pill container and your kitten's weight available when you call. Treat as indicated or recommended.
