I just saw my cat playing with an Adderall XR pill. I grabbed it right away and it's only a little moist but still intact. Could he have ingested anything?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if your cat will be able to digest that. What is your cat's name and age?

Haddon and about 5

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Haddon?

I don't think so

Thank you for your question about this situation with Haddon. If you have the entire pill there and it is only a little moist, then it wouldn't seem that he had the ability to eat any of the actual pill. For a potential issue to be there, it would have to be him eating actual portions of the pill. If again the pill is there and just a little moist, I wouldn't feel that this is a situation that has concern.
