Customer Question

My yorkie took a Depend Disposable from the garbage can and shredded it. I believe he swallowed some of the moisture absorption granules and has a tummy ache. He vomitted twice. What should I do?

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 situation, and wanted to help.

Again I do apologize that my colleagues could not aid you sooner. If you would still like assistance, can you tell me:

How many hours ago did he eat this?

What is he bringing up in his vomit? Any of the material?

Are his gums nice and pink (not white/pale)? Moist or sticky?

If you press on his belly, does he have any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?

Any straining to pass stool?

Dr. B:Thank-you for responding but I have already contacted Winston's Vet and I am taking him there.

No worries, my dear.

Since you have I will just pass your question back to customer service.

Best wishes for you both,

Dr. B.
