Dr. K :

Was this a birth control pill?

Dr. K :

How long ago did she eat it?

Dr. K :

Was estrogen the only active ingredient in the pill?

Dr. K :

Hello? Are you there?

JACUSTOMER-g7oc8e3d- :

Replying again I assue you didnot receive my first reply The pill bottle says premarin and does not list the ingredents

JACUSTOMER-g7oc8e3d- :

She bit the pill in half and may not have actually ate more than crumbs but I cannot be sure

Dr. K :

Premarin is a hormone replacement pill.

Dr. K :

If she only ate half of the pill...there is really no reason to be very concerned.

JACUSTOMER-g7oc8e3d- :

Yes, I am aware it is. It was for my Mother in Law

Dr. K :

There are no reports of estrogen overdose in dogs...and such a small, one time amount is not likely to have much of an effect on her.

JACUSTOMER-g7oc8e3d- :

Thank you. Just wanted to make sure FYI I received your answer through the website but it appears you did not receive my replys so I had to switch and reply through my e-mail.
