Thanks so much for requesting me. I am sorry Squeekers ate part of a burr. We must get him to eat people tuna in oil. That will accomplish two things.

1 the tuna will coat the burr so his insides will not be scratched.

2 the oil will help move it through his GI tract.

In the meantime put vaseline or cat lax on his lips for him to lick off.

Give him 2 drops of honey by dropper to sooth his throat.

Please let me know what happens.

Please be so kind as to rate my answer positively as that is the only way I receive credit for my assistance. Thank you very much!
