I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please contact [email protected] for questions other than about Laura's health. I regret that I'm not allowed to communicate with customers by phone.

My hope is that the bark represented all that Laura had inappropriately ingested and then vomited. As long as she continues to normally active and appetent there's no reason to have her vet attend to her. Persistent vomiting and anorexia are the hallmarks of gastrointestinal obstruction and if those symptoms arose a visit to her vet who would perform a thorough physical exam including either X-rays of ultrasound of Laura's abdomen would be in order. Please give me an update on Laura and please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
