Customer Question

Accidentally gave a Greenie's cat treat, Pill Pocket, to my dog. It was a very small pill, but could it harm my two year old King Charles Spaniel?

Was there a pill inside the pill pocket or just the pill pocket itself?

Expert:  Dr. G. replied 6 months ago.

If it was just a pill pocket, it should not pose any harm to your dog. If there is a medication in the pill, it depends on the drug and exact dose ingested.
