My dog ate foil. A squirrel got it out of the garbage. She missed the squirrel, but grabbed the foil. Ugh

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. The Expert will know if your dog will be able to digest that. What is your dog's name and age?

Her name is***** is a Bassett hound/coon hound mix. 3 and half years old and about 40 pounds

About the size of a golf ball. She seemed to rip it apart i just couldn’t get through the snow fast enough to get it from her! She seems fine.

Thanks

We can manage this at home

Please give 1 to 2 tablespoons of canned pumpkin with each meal for the next few days

This will push the foil along and out

Works every time

Please update me tomorrow

Food and water as per usual

Okay?

Paul
