Hello, my...

Hello, my 15 month old German Shepard just ate my daughter's birth control pill. She ate a 21 day supply. She seems fine, but not sure if this will be a problem.

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

Brandy

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Brandy?

She is a 15 month old full blood German Shepard and she has been neutered.

Thankfully, one-time overdoses of the estrogen hormone in those pills are unlikely to pose much risk although transient reduced appetite, anorexia, and/or vomiting may be seen in dogs. The progesterone hormone in those pills is very well tolerated and not a concern. There's no need to induce emesis or treat in any manner. Please respond with further questions or concerns.
