My 1 year old male dog may have eaten one microgynon birth

Customer Question

My 1 year old male dog may have eaten one microgynon birth control tablet. Will he need to see a vet and will he be ill?

Aloha! You're speaking with Dr. Michael Salkin
Bracken should remain unaffected. The amount of the estrogen in that tablet is consistent to what we might dose a dog. The amount of progesterone is insignificant compared to dog doses.
