My 13 pound Boston Terrier just ate a tea bag. The wrapper

Customer Question

Hi, my 13 pound Boston Terrier just ate a tea bag. The wrapper was shredded on the floor, but the tea (caffienated) string and mesh are gone. Is this going to hurt her?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the Boston terrier will be able to digest that. What is the Boston terrier's name and age?
Customer: 3 years old. Her name is Sukey.
JA: Anything else I can tell the Veterinarian before I connect you two?
Customer: well, this was about 15 mins ago
JA: I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and connect you two.
