For the past approx. 4 days, from Wednesday until now, Sunday,, my cat has gone poop twice, once not last night but the night before and once Thursday morning. He seems to be peeing less as well. I thought he had a blockage so I brought him to the vet who said otherwise. Last night I found half of a chewed up gelcap surrounded by the beads from inside the gelcap of a Propranolol HCL 60MG SA. I assume the cat ate the propranolol on Wednesday. He is acting fine, just a little more vocal than usual. He's not clumsy or lethargic or tired. Although he is eating less. Can someone please tell me the toxicity of propranolol to cats/give me some advice on what I should do? In other words, is this an emergency? The cat is 2 years old and is an indoor cat.
My cat ate a propranolol. Please help!?

Take your cat to emergency, the side effects of this med in humas can be very serious, now if you compare the size of a 2 year old kitten to ours, I mean somethinfg must definetely has to be done about it. By the way get another vet.
I do not know the toxicity of the to animals because this med is not meant to be given to them, this med is for peolple.
All the best ang good luck
There is a veterinary link for drugs.com on the main home page and people usually get better anwers and quicker for pets on that link. You may can call a pharmacist and find out if the cat is in danger. Pharmacist know the most about medications and some pharmacies compound meds for pets.
I would ask the local vet immediately.
Call the Veterinarian
