Customer Question

My British bulldog 3 months old just vomited foam and a piece of rawhide strap. He is now breathing quite heavily and seems more placid than usual. He did however earlier this afternoon ate a rawhide twist. Should we be very concerned ?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Well we think he swallowed that rawhide twist this afternoon as we cannot find remnants. He then had dinner tonight and passed a little stool a couple hours later. We went to get dinner and left him with a thin raw hide strap. We came back and then he vomittwd up the rawhide strap along with foam. His stomach seemed to pulsate and his breathing laboured. He seems to be more calm now but we're so worried. We don't if the twist front his afternoon is going to cause a blockage
