Hi! Welcome and thanks for using Just Answer. I am Dr. Laura. I am a veterinarian with 20 years of experience with small animals. I am sorry you are having this problem with Luna
Customer
Hi thank you!
Customer
Hoping you can alleviate my concerns
You're welcome! Luckily these aren't necessarily toxic but can cause some stomach upset. It is good that she vomited a lot of them back up. Hoe is she acting now?
Customer
She seems totally fine!
Customer
Acting normally
Good! I wouldn't be too concerned but watch her for further vomiting or possibly diarrhea but if these occur they should be mild.
Customer
Ok great, thank you!
You're very welcome! Can I help you with anything else?
Customer
Just wanted to clarify, since you said they aren't "necessarily" toxic; does that mean they can be sometimes? Or just that it upsets their stomachs?
It means that it can upset the stomach. Some people consider even stomach upset a toxicity but that isn't life threatening unless it is severe and not treated.
Customer
Ok great! I don't think it seems severe, since she only threw up once. But I'll keep an eye on her. Thank you!
Exactly! You're very welcome! Thanks for using Just Answer!
