Please don't be alarmed. We dose our pets with aproximately 100X the amount you would be prescribed. 44 mcg (0.044 mg) is a miniscule dose for a cat and Whitney should remain unaffected. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner.

Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
