Customer Question
My little dog chewed...

My little dog chewed up two from what my roommates and I can tell of Christmas tree lights he did eat the green part and we found some of the glass and don't know if he ate the rest . My mom said to just watch him and we fed him wheat bread but I'm scared

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if the dog will be able to digest that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?

He's 6 pounds and almost one

Hi!

Dr. Paul Brazzell here

I would be happy to help you

The gastrointestinal tract is pretty good at pushing sharp objects through without damage

We want to help by giving one to two tablespoons of canned pumpkin with each meal

This will coat the sharp pieces and also physically push everything along

Do this for two to three days times

Give food and water as per norrmal

Update m this evening (Dec 6th)

We want to watch for vomiting, blood in vomit, abdominal pain, blood in stool or lack of stool

Okay?
Paul
