Customer Question

My 9 week old miniature schnauzer female chewed my eyeglasses while I was sleeping one ofthe silicone nose pads is missing and assumed ingested. Also the flexon brand titanium frames have a copper-colored finish that is chipped off in many places now no sign of any of it in the white bed sheets also had to be ingested. 4 months ago I spent $7,500 trying to save my 11 year old Miniature Schnauzer with GI Lymphoma. Stormie did not make it. Now I am scared to death I have endangered my new baby Mystie through my stupidity. Have been ng her bowel movements for the silicone nose pad but has not passed. What should I do?

The nose pad will pass through Mystie's gastrointestinal tract unaided and without harm. The finish is non-toxic in the amount it was ingested. Mystie should remain unaffected. I would have a word with her, however.

Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

I'm just following up on our conversation about Mystie. How is everything going?
