Hi

Dr. Paul Brazzell here

I would be happy to help you

I am one of the veterinarians authorized on this site to answer questions by text and/or phone

If you would like to just text then please ignore the phone call request from the site

I am happy to tell you that there is no risk of toxicity

We only have to worry about the bits of sheet passing through

Lets give 1 teaspoon of canned pumpkin with each meal for the next few days

That should solve the problem

Update me tomorrow night

Okay?

Paul

what does the pumpkin do?
Cat Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 2 months ago

The pumpkiin is a source of soluble fiber and will push the dryer sheet through

It bulks up the stool and sticks to things
