She just ate a...

She just ate a popped popcorn, it fell on the floor and she got to it before I could grab it. Pop Secret butter light. Is one popped kernal harmful?

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

Friend, popcorn is nontoxic to dogs. If it has butter it can cause vomiting, diarrhea, pancreatitis if they eat a lot. But, if it was a few kernel not likely to cause any diarrhea or vomiting. Reese will be fine, no need to worry.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service. If you have any follow-up questions don't hesitate to ask. If finished, please take a moment to rate my service it is how I get compensated. See you again soon!

Thanks for your help. Reese is fine. I have to watch what she eats. Anything off nothing stays down. I was nervous because the popcorn was microwaved.
