Our dog ingested quite a lot of sand today. She has now vomited 4 times. She's 45 lbs.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. The Expert will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name?

Lily

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Lily?

She is drinking water. She hasn't defecated since ingesting the sand.
