Customer Question

I think my cat ate a vitamin of mine set out on the counter. I can't find it and she was there licking the other vitamins. If she ate it, it was either a Zinc tablet or Tamoxifen (estrogen blocker for cancer patients). The tablets look alike. She weighs almost 11 lbs.Will she be ok ?

I am sorry you are worried. I would not expect any harmful effects from a one time dose of either of these pills.
However,I doubt that she ate it. Cats, unlike dogs do not typically eat things they find on the floor.
It is much more likely she played with it and knocked it under something.
I hope this eases your mind and you find the pill. Please let me know by pressing reply.
