Dr. Navitsky :

Hi there I can talk with you. My name is Dr. Jody Navitsky and I am a general pediatrician trained in the US. What was the active ingredient in the tablet? You can get this off of the box

Dr. Navitsky :

In addition to this if you could tell me how much she weighs approximately?

Dr. Navitsky :

Let me know if you still need help by just replying to this feed. I will be around about 1/2 hour more if you happen to catch this. Most of the ingredients in cat dewormers we also use in humans for the same purpose (mainly pinworms), so accidental ingestion of this type of medicine especially in a cat size dose (little!) probably won't be anything scary but to tell for sure I would have to know exactly what was in the pill. Thanks!
