Here's a phrase I never thought I would have to type into google; "My dog ate my birth control pills." For the three years we have had Tater my pills have sat right next to the bed and he has never bothered them... tonight I go out to the garage with Reid for maybe ten minutes, come back in, do some dishes, and then go to the bedroom. My pill pack was on the floor destroyed. I frantically counted pills and days... we were missing two and a half. I called the emergency vet line and she told me to calm down (not that I ever freak out where my pets are concerned!), that we could make him throw up but that since it could have been as much as two hours between ingestion and now and since they are very low dose and he ate so few we probably did not need to. She said just keep an eye on him. She also said that he might have a few "behavioral" changes in the next few days and possibly some gastro-intestinal problems but that he should be otherwise fine.
Unconvinced as I was, I then went to the trusty internet and at least five sites (even when I added the words veterinary advice) all said the same thing. So, I'm going to trust everyone... and laugh about it as soon as I see Tater happy and alert tomorrow!
