Hello, this is Dr RB;) My best advice to you is seek immediate care fore Copper at your regular veterinarian. It is possible that the wax fruit may either cause a gastrointestinal obstruction and/or the wax in the fruit will cause a toxicity when it is absorbed into the blood stream. Your DVM will be able to determine a possible obstruction via abdominal x-rays as well as treat any underlying secondary effects such as enteritis or poisoning from the wax. I hope this is helpful to you:)
