Yes, it is possible that your kitten could develop illness. Because your kitten is quite small, the medication could result in bad gastrointestinal symptoms.

Now, sentinel does contain Lufenuron and Milbemycin. These are two chemicals that are used in cats. So, I am less concerned about toxicity to the body, but it could still result in illness.

I would give a good meal right now to get some food in to the belly, which may help. However!

On the onset of any symptoms, I would not take a wait and see approach. Well worth some basic supportive care.

Good Luck!
