Q. My cat just ran outside and he started chewing on poiswn ivy. For about 4 seconds. What should I do?

A. You likely won't see much from such a quick exposure. Monitor for excessive drooling or redness/swelling around the mouth. If you see any, rinse the area thoroughly with cool water if possible. Monitor also for GI upset.
