Caught my dog eating an unlit sparkler. Got the wire

Customer Question

Hi! Caught my dog eating an unlit sparkler. Got the wire away from her, and not all of the flammable part was ingested, but I'm very worried. What should I do?

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
I share your concern about Britny.
Can you tell me how much you think she had of the material? Half, more, less?
Was it just one sparkler she got?
How long ago?
How much does she weigh?
Can you check the pack and tell me the ingredients (As they vary between products and some are more dangerous then others)?
How is she just now?
Any drooling, vomiting, belly pain, or changes to her breathing?
