Welcome to JustAnswer.com! My name is***** and I have been a licensed veterinarian for 10 years. I would be happy to answer your question. I'm sorry to hear Browning got into the spurs. I recommend feeding him some canned pumpkin to help coat those burrs and help them slide inside the stomach. Then give water to drink. They will slide down into his stomach, and the stomach should digest them. If he's not feeling better in an hour, he might have some scratching inside of his esophagus caused by the burs and in that case I recommend getting some pain medication from your vet to make him more comfortable.
