Customer Question

My 5 month old Golden Retriever old puppy just ate 1/4 of an angel food layer cake with whipped cream frosting and strawberries which was covered in plastic wrap. We are lucky we caught him before he ate the paper plate!
According to the answer you posted 7 years ago he should be ok? I would guess his weight at around 50 lbs.

Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question. Just like an in person consult, I have a few questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible.....

Were you able to get the plastic wrap out of his mouth?

Do you have any hydrogen peroxide in the house?

How long ago did he eat it?
