A friends Havernese dog...

A friends Havernese dog got into their garbage and got an estrogen patch stuck to his foot. not sure if he licked it, patch was a week old. should they be concerned?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if the dog will be able to digest that. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?

Hello, Dr. Deb here; I responded to your question about Budda which I hope you can access.

I tried to report this question as a duplicate so that you won't be charged twice for asking the same question but I was unable to do so. I would suggest that you contact customer service and request a refund for this question since I'm unable to provide that service for you.

Can you write answer here. My email is not working.

Absolutely. I'll copy my response below; sorry for the problems you're having.

As long as Budda didn't actually ingest the patch itself but only licked it, I wouldn't expect any toxicity issues or any negative consequences from his doing so....especially since it was used and this wasn't chronic exposure. Our biggest concern in these situations is if the patch itself is ingested which might cause an obstruction. There isn't a high risk that this will occur since most dogs are able to pass these sorts of objects with no problem but there's a slight risk that they won't.

Symptoms to monitor (if he did eat the patch) will be vomiting, disinterest in food, lethargy and/or abdominal pain; however, if he didn't eat the patch, then no action is necessary. He'll be fine.

I hope this helps, Deb
