Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you and Cosmo today. I am a licensed veterinarian with over 25 years experience and would be happy work with you.
Can you tell me what the approximate dimensions of the cloth was?
How much does Cosmo weigh?
Thank you for the prompt reply.
A piece of cloth that small should present no problems in passing and I wouldn't be too concerned if you didn't see it. Even though it is cloth, it is not impossible that it could be "digested" in the stomach by the stomach acids (I have seen them dissolve a chicken bone).
As long as he continues to eat and act normally, I would be to worried. If he starts to vomit or refuse food however in the next day or so, I would definitely have him evaluated by your veterinarian.
I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please reply so I can clarify for you.
It is possible he may have only have an upset stomach, but if there is the possibility he may have ingested additional pieces, it wouldn't hurt. They can take an xray, and while it won't show cloth, if there is an obstruction, that maybe visible on the xray.
Good luck and please keep me posted on how things progress.
