Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today. I do apologize that your question was not answered before. Different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about your wee one’s situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner, but can you tell me:

Does Magic have any discomfort or tenderness if you press on her belly?

Did she eat any of the pencil?

Did her last stool look normal? Or was it black or bloody?

Hello again,

In that case, it sounds like you are in the right place with Magic. Since my colleagues couldn't aid you when you posted, I will send this question back to customer service for a refund.

Please take care,

Dr. B.
