Hi there,
Thank you for your question regarding your boy Midnight. Before I put an answer together for you, I am going to need a little more info about your boy:
- How long has he been doing this for?
- Does he just lick the plastic and tape, or is he chewing and eating it?
- Has he ever swallowed these? What type of plastic is he getting into? Bags?
Once you get back to me, I will start typing up my response. Thanks for this and I look forward to hearing from you shortly.
Dr E
