Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 7 months ago.

1) Was the flatbread raw?
2) Did it have any herbs or spices?
3) How long ago was it consumed?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Could eat it as was as a wrap, but cook 2 min to use as pizza. No herbs or spices. About 3 hours ago we think

The bread itself should not be a concern and the packaging should go through if it is pliable. You may see some vomiting or diarrhea over the next few days. If this is persistent or you see avoidance of food/water, he needs to see a vet. Otherwise, I would keep an eye on him. If diarrhea begins, you can give him boiled chicken and rice for a few days to help calm the stomach. You may see no symptoms at all but should monitor closely just in case. If symptoms do arise in the next few days and you need more help, feel free to message me back on this thread and I'll help you further.

I’ll be standing by if you have other questions. Let me know if I can help further.
