Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hi. Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** Is this a piece of an amber rock? How big do you think? How big is the dog?
Ok. Well that is a decent sized piece. Honestly, is it going to make him sick or be a problem? That is unknown. It could sit in the stomach and just be too big to start to pass into the intestines. If it just sits in the stomach and doesn't move, it may not be a problem. Could he at some point vomit it up? Could it start to pass and pass all the way through? Could it get stuck? Signs of a blockage are vomiting, loss of appetite for over 24 hours and / or abdominal discomfort. IN situations like this, one thing I would throw out there is if he truly ate it. I've had numerous similar situations where "things" are thought to be ate, but they weren't. An x-ray with your vet can confirm if it was truly eaten.
