Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
JACustomer, thanks for your question. Do you have a picture of the chunk? How large is it? Is Leo still eating and drinking? When did it previously occur? Do you know where the orange chunk came from?
I did not know that Leo was a Rottweiler. It's just coincidence.If he's vomited this up twice, chances are that he's eaten it within the 24 hours prior to vomiting. That said, rubber pieces can stay in the gut for quite some time before being produced in the vomit so this could potentially be something that he ate a while back that's causing nausea and being produced now. It could be the final piece or there could be more. So long as he's eating and drinking, we wouldn't be too concerned about doing anything more than observing him for more issues.If you are concerned about what this is/where it came from, it may be time to kennel Leo when you are unable to watch him simply because the risk is present that he could eat a chunk large enough to make it into his intestines and cause a blockage that would require surgery.
