Our dog just ate...

Our dog just ate a dead animal. We don’t know what it was. Should we be concerned even if he doesn’t show symptoms?

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?

No I don’t think so

We didn’t get a chance to see the animal so we don’t know it’s species or how long it was dead.
Customer reply replied 5 months ago
Okay

NO worries

I suspect all will be well

If it was a raccoon then we do worry about one internal parasite- but pretty rare and unlikely to be an issue

I will look for your update later today

And you can rate me now- I will leave this link open for updates
