Q. Our dog swallowed birth control pills. Will he be okay. He's a 80 pound Golden Retriever

A. In most of the cases contraception pills are not dangerous to dogs. However, you should contact your vet with the name of medication and information how many tablets he ate to confirm that he will be ok.
