If I give him boiled chicken and rice will that help
Expert:  Lisa replied 1 month ago.

Okay great....thanks for the additional information. I really appreciate it.

At this point, the best thing to do is to monitor him for problems like vomiting or attempting to vomit with no success, lethargy, anorexia, or problems defecating. If you see any of those, then you should have him seen by a vet immediately so they can take an x-ray to make sure that he doesn't have an obstruction.

If you wanted to give him the white rice and boiled chicken in small amounts for a couple days to see how he does with it.

Hopefully this will just pass through with no problems, but I'd monitor him for the next 7-10 days, and make sure to watch him when he goes out to defecate so that you can see if the pad is moving through his system.

I hope this helps.
