Customer Question

My dog ate a stretch bandage. I found a piece of it. She is drinking water but vomiting. She does not want to eat anything. I'm hoping she will pass it. I don't have alot of money . I would think they would do x ray. Should I take the dog to the vet in the morning

How long ago did she eat the bandage, and how big was it?

Expert:  Rebecca replied 10 months ago.

Many things will pass, but a long stretchy bandage might cause an intestinal blockage.

I hope you were able to see my responses; I have not heard back from you! I will be going offline soon; let me know if I can help with anything else. An xray might be a good idea, but a thorough physical exam is the first thing I would do.
