Customer Question

About 2 hours ago my chihuaha mix dog ate and chewed up and swallowed a silicon cooking ring. He has thrown up a couple times and it was small pieces. He is now acting weird. Like he is afraid of something. O hallucenating or something. Is it poisonous? I cant read his mind and I dont know what to do. Any advice?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Did you see what your dog ate?
Customer: ZYes a silicone rubbery cooking ring for frying eggs etc
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

Can he keep any water down?

Are his gums pink or white/pale? Moist or sticky?

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

Thanks for your reply. He seems better today. Running and romping with my blood hound and ***** *****. No sickness. I think he is ok now but I have had a worrisome day. Thanks. And just FYI, When someone seeks help they need a timely response.
