Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I am not set up to do phone calls but would be happy to answer any questions you do have online. If you get a request for a phone call, it is from the website and not myself. That is not something her system will be able to digest regardless of what you give her. If she ate small enough pieces, though, she may be able to pass it through with no problem. It is possible that it can cause some mild vomiting or diarrhea, but that is usually not a concern. I would try to add some fiber to her diet. A tablespoon (or teaspoon if she is small) of either Metamucil or pure canned pumpkin over each meal will add fiber, increase fecal bulk to surround the sponge and help to push it out. If she vomits once or twice, I wouldn't be too concerned, as long as her appetite remains normal. If she vomits more than that, has diarrhea for more than 36-48 hours, has bloody stool or is not eating, then I would have your vet check her out ASAP. If she is vomiting often and not eating, then there is a chance some of the ball may have caused an obstruction. If she is a bigger dog, the chance of that would be less likely then if she is smaller. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
