My dog, a Miniature Pinscher, got into a rubbish bag tonight…

Customer Question
Hi. My dog...

Hi. My dog, a Miniature Pinscher, got into a rubbish bag tonight while I wasn't looking. I don't know what she ate. Her stomach is swollen. I'm not sure how worried I should be. Any advice?

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

She is very small. 1.6 kg
