I have a kitten....about...

I have a kitten....about 18 weeks. She ate a part of a chicken bone. It was a cooked bone. She seems uncomfortable...not herself. What can I expect? What should I do for her?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if the kitten will be able to digest that. What is the kitten's name?

Leafy

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

No. She is a very friendly cat. She is definitely uncomfortable

I would say about 3 hours ago. She seems uncomfortable.

Thanks

But she is not pawing at mouth or making repeated swallowing efforts?

No, no pawing at her mouth or repeated swallowing efforts.

Will she be able to pass it? How long before she will pass it if she can?

Okay

No need for call- Save your money :)

Lets give one tablespoon of canned pumpkin with each meal going forward for 2-3 days time

This will coat the bone and push it through

You can also use Metamucil (one teaspoon per meal) but make sure it does NOT have Xylitol in it

Okay?
