Customer Question
I dropped a coffee...

I dropped a coffee bean and the cat ate it. Now what?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. The Expert will know if the cat will be able to digest that. What is the cat's name and age?

Clara and she's 10 years about. She's my daughter's cat but is with me for a while.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Clara?

She has some condition that makes her ears get scabby--when it gets bad enough she gets an injection. Not much help without the details .

Hi.

Dr. Paul Brazzell here.

I am not too worried.

That coffee bean should pass through the gastric outflow tract and the ileocoecal valve and into the colon.

It is small enough.

And if Clara ate it whole then there is no worry about caffeine

We need to watch her for vomiting and inappetance.

She should pass that coffee bean within the next 24 hours.

Make sense?

Paul
