Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello, My name is Terri.It is my pleasure to assist you today!I am reviewing your question right now and will reply in a few minutes.
Has she had a normal bowel movement since you dropped the chip?
What food does she usually eat?
What color are her gums?
Thanks so much for your very helpful reply.
If, God forbid the chip was causing a blockage she will not be able to pass stools.
However, I doubt if it could harm her.
Give her wet food or tuna in oil to aid the passage.
Give her milk to drink now.
let me know if she eats or drinks the milk............I will stand by
OK, both of those things are very good. Now if shes arching her back she may not have even eaten the chip.
She may have pain in her stomach or back.
I want you to palpate her back and stomach and tell me if she reacts like it hurts her
Where exactly is she licking?
When was her last BM?
What and when did she eat last?
After the milk I want you to give her mushy food to coat the chip (if its in there)like tuna or canned food
It could mean she's in pain and trying to cope with it.
How much milk did she drink?
Is she gagging or trying to vomit?
Look inside her mouth on roof and under tongue for a stuck item
Check her thigh and surrounding area for a bite or sting
You should not have been charged anything until you actually rate an answer so I will notify customer service.
It is my pleasure to help such a wonderful person.
Is she eating ?
