Customer Question

Hi My dog ate a double bladed razor head
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The Veterinarian will know if your dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Ivy. 3 years old
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Ivy?
Customer: No previous conditions
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello. This is something that should be removed either via surgery or endoscopy. I would first get an x-ray to make sure it's in the stomach. After that, they can either go in with a scope and remove it or just go in surgically and remove it. In financial cases, I have induced vomiting in these dogs with decent success. If there is food in the stomach, it can come up with the food as a cushion. It's a little risky, but it's an option. I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
