Hi, this is Dr. Hill. Can you tell me the name of the fly strips?
got it. Give me a minute to look at ingredients.
How on earth did she eat two of this strips and the box? She is a tiny thing. So, the good news is that there is no insecticide in that brand, so just the sticky glue which is not an issue. The big issue, is all of the material obstructing her stomach. Two options: make her vomit or leave her along tonight and then take her to local veterinarian in the morning for X-rays of her abdomen. How long ago did she eat them?
You can make her vomit by giving her one teaspoon of hydrogen peroxide by mouth. This usually works within 15 minutes. May sound weird, but save anything she vomits, so that it can be looked at by your veterinarian.
Let me know what she brings up if anything. Did she eat any dinner when you got home from work?
I would offer her a little food and then give her the peroxide.
She is a tough nut!! You can give one more teaspoon of peroxide to see if she will vomit. I usually don't give more than that to small dogs. Or you can let her sleep and see how she is acting in the morning. Please let me know how she does. I will check back in tomorrow morning. Take care.
