The concern would be a possible obstruction. I would try to make him vomit. To induce vomiting this is what you can do:

1- Give him 1 tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide 3% orally to induce vomiting.

2- Allow him to walk for a minute and move his belly to mix stomach content with peroxide. If he does not vomit within 5-10 minutes, repeat it again. Can give a total of 3 times 5-10 minutes apart.

3- Please let me know if he vomits I will be on standby for the next 20 minutes.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service. If you have any follow-up questions don't hesitate to ask. If finished, please take a moment to rate my service it is how I get compensated. See you again soon!

Gave second dose and no vomiting yet.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Peter, Veterinarian replied 6 months ago

If he does not vomit within 5-10 minutes repeat a 3rd dose. If he does not vomit after the 3rd dose the next step is having him checked by the nearest ER veterinarian and they can try to make him vomit with a medication called apomorphine.

Took him to ER and they administered med to make him vomit an additional 29 balls. He's back to normal!

Fantastic! I am happy to learn he is back to normal. Thank you for the update.
