Customer Question

My 4 month old kitten got into a bag of treats and ate the whoel bag including a big chunk of plastic. He vomited like 4-5 times and alot of dry heaving. I looked at his vomit and there was a good amount of plastic but Im not sure if it was the entire amount he ate. And now hes just licking his food not eating it.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if the kitten will be able to digest that. What is the kitten's name?
Customer: Oliver
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Oliver?
Customer: Hes still playful but not as playful as normal but thats about it

Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am sorry to hear about Oliver. How long ago did he eat the treats and plastic? How long since he last vomited? Is there any pain when you press on her belly?
