Hi,

 

Welcome to Just Answer. I'm sorry to hear about this. How long did this occur? How big is your dog? Was it just one sausage?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
it was one big sausage, he is about 9 lbs (a mini dacshund) and it happened about two hours ago
i just got home and he got into the trash
Ok. At this point in time, there is a very good chance that this is going to be a non-issue. If he's got a pretty solid stomach, he'll digest it and never have a problem. But, he could have some diarrhea and / or vomiting from this ingestion. Time will tell on these. Here tonight, I'd pull up his food till the morning and just let him have access to water.
