She ate the whole tjong. I csn not find sny trace of it. It was one of those over sized muffins. It was big.
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Should i have her throw it up?

Is it just the paper casing she ate?

Ask Your Own Dog Veterinary Question

She should be able to partly digest this and it should pass through the digestive system of an average sized shih-tzu without issue.

If you do wish to induce vomiting, and if she has eaten it within the last hour, inducing vomiting should result in her bringing it back up. This can be done with 3% hydrogen peroxide given at 1ml per pound. Encourage her to walk around after she has been given the peroxide to get her stomach contents mixing. You should see her vomit within a few minutes.
