Hello & welcome,
Do you think he brought it all back up?
How long ago did he eat the cardboard?
Can he keep water down?
Are his gums pink or pale/white? Moist or sticky?
If you press on his belly, does he have any discomfort, tenderness, or tensing?
Any straining to pass stool, diarrhea, or black feces?
