Hello again Roberta
I have worked out an answer for you ...
1. Insulation of this type can be very irritant to your dog's digestive tract. There is also some degree of risk of a blockage in the digestive tract depending on how much was swallowed.
2. In this sort of situation I usually do not suggest inducing vomiting as this type of material could well cause more problems on the way back up.
3. What may help is if you could quickly feed Max a few slices of bread or some mashed potato in the hope that this will form round some of the insulation material and serve to protect the gut lining as it passes along.
4. It is certainly possible that the insulation material may pass on its own with only minor side effects, but you should keep a good eye on your dog and if any adverse side effects of any sort should occur such as vomiting, lethargy, inappetance, straining or signs of abdominal pain then you should have your dog checked over by a vet without delay.
I hope I have covered your question fully enough but if you would like further clarification or to talk things over a bit more then I will be on-line for the next hour or so and I will be more than pleased to continue working with you.
Please be kind enough to rate my service to you after we have concluded our dialogue, such feedback helps me maintain the quality of my answers.
