Give me a few minutes please to type your answer. Thank you.
Friend, the gummy fruit are not going to be toxic. My main concern would be a possible obstruction with the wrappers or box as you have suspected. I would try to induce vomiting with peroxide 3%. Need to move quickly before the wrappers and box move out of the stomach into the intestines. To induce vomiting this is what you can do:1- Give her 1 tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide orally to induce vomiting.2- Allow him to walk for a minute and move his belly to mix stomach content with peroxide. If he does not vomit within 5-10 minutes, repeat it again. Can give a total of 3 times 5-10 minutes apart.3- If he does not vomit or you do not see the wrappers or box in the vomit change his diet for the next 3-5 days to rice (75%) and boiled boneless chicken or ground beef (25%). The idea is for the rice to help pass the wrappers and box in the feces. Make sure you are checking the stool; if within 48 hours you don't seen any of the wrapper or box I would have him checked by family vet for xrays with barium.4- If during the next 2-3 days you see the following symptoms: lethargy, anorexia, vomiting, constipated or diarrhea, etc. follow up immediately with a veterinarian. These are all signs of a possible obstruction of the intestinal tract. In the meantime, observe and change diet as above then wean back into regular diet.
