My cat might or might not have eaten a progesterone cap

Customer Question

My cat might or might not have eaten a progesterone cap (100mg). Is this poisonous to her? Thanks.

Hello, I am sorry to hear you are worried about your cat. I have been doing some research, and cannot find that a single dose of progesterone is going to harm her. Estrogen would be a problem but if this was progesterone alone, she should be OK. I did find one report of a cat being unusually drowsy after getting some progesterone, but the dose he got was not known.
