Customer Question
HI. I'm pretty sure...

HI. I'm pretty sure my 5 month old Havanese ate one of my birth control pills. It's lo-estrin. I'm just curious is I should be concerned?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. The Expert will know if the dog will be able to digest that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?

No. Just that she is little. About 5 pounds.

Neither the progesterone nor estrogen in that pill is expected to cause any symptoms in your dog. Rarely, a one-time ingestion of the estrogen (ethinyl estradiol) can cause a false heat in an unspayed female. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
