Customer Question

My puppy ate some drywall will it make her sick? Can it kill her if I don't get her to a vet

Biggest issue would be intestinal damage or a blockage from eating it.
Dry wall is high in calcium and sometimes appeals to dogs.
You can see if using Bitter Apple or a similar spray that tastes bad on the dry wall and giving her the biggest smoked bone you can find to chew will help resolve this.
If she has abdominal distress, seems constipated or starts vomiting then see your vet.
Hope this helps you!
