Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
Did you witness the consumption of the tape?Any vomiting or diarrhea?
Excellent. Typically it takes as long as 3-5 days for a foreign body to pass (assuming it does not become a blockage). I would keep a close eye for GI signs such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, avoiding food and water, lethargy, etc. It would not hurt to add pure canned pumpkin to canned cat food and feed this for the next week to help move any tape through the intestines. If, by chance, you see any protruding from the rectum NEVER pull. Always trim close to the anus and allow the body to expel it naturally.
