My puppy’s is only 8 weeks old and weighs a pound maybe two. My son dropped a mandarin seed and he ate it. I’m just worried about obstruction. He swallowed it whole before I could get it out of his mouth.

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

No we just got him yesterday. He goes for his initial appointment in a week

Hi

Dr. Paul Brazzell here

Just one of the many mandarin seeds? About 5.0mm across?

I believe so. It happened so fast I didn’t get the best look. My son was trying to show me something on the seed and dropped it and he snatched it right up

Okay I am not that worried

I would give one tablespoon of canned pumpkin with each meal going forward and this will push the seed through

It will pass- not to worry

Okay?

Paul

Hey Doctor Paul. So Teddy has pooped twice since we last spoke. No sign of the seed. No vomiting and I have given him the pumpkin. He seems as active as ever.

Good stuff
