Hello. I am Dr A and would love to help.

This is an emergency. If it just happened ,you need to call your veterinarian to see if it can be tubed/removed from the stomach immediately. If it has been some time, then there is a high chance of kidney disease, and so should be tested for kidney function, started on fluids, given a stomach protector, and all abnormalities noted on the bloodwork should be addressed. This can be a life threatening condition, so It is recommended that you call your veterinarian immediately and have them come out on and emergency visit.

Come back here with any questions. I would be happy to continue helping you get through this!
