Hi JaCustomer,

My name is ***** ***** I’ve been involved professionally with dogs in the health and behavioral fields for over 18 years. It will be my pleasure to work with you today.

I'm not sure you still need assistance or not but with the ingestion of rawhide, it can take a few days to soften enough to move through the system. In the meantime, an intestinal obstruction might occur and in some cases not soften enough to move through. So you will need to monitor your dog for symptoms of obstruction and have your dog seen if they occur so your vet can verify that the rawhide has not caused an obstruction and is still moving through her system. You can read about obstructions here:
