I believe that my dog eat a cotton ball.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is wrong with your dog?

I believe that my dog ate a cotton ball. He is 50 pounds. I induced vomitting with hydrogen peroxide but did not find the cotton ball in the vomit.

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

Good morning!

Dr. Paul Brazzell here.

I am very happy to tell you that you have nothing to worry about.

The cotton ball will pass without any problems.

NO need to try and induce vomiting again
