My three month old puppy just swallowed a piece of rawhide

Customer Question

Customer: Hi, my three month old puppy just swallowed a piece of rawhide and not he is coughing and trying to vomit
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

Do you have an idea of the rawhide's size?

Has he had any vomiting since you posted your question?

Can he keep food or water down? Any appetite?

If you press on his belly, any discomfort, pain, or tensing?

Any straining to pass stool?
