I think he ate...

I think he ate cat litter and has been puking and pooping and looks like coffee grounds with rocks in it

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. The Expert will know if the dog will be able to digest that. What is the dog's name and age?

Zeus. 5 years okd

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Zeus?

He seems to act ok. Is eating and drinking but seems to have trouble pooping. He puked several times earlier today but not lately

HI this is DRB and I will try and help you with this...what type of cat litter...is it clay litter or scoopable sand litter?

It’s the special kitty clumping cat litter

Ok. this is not good....this stuff swells in the GI tract and can cause an obstruction.....your dog needs to go to the ER...now.

He puked some this earlier today. Then started acting better

We don’t have an animal er around here. What will the vet do if we take him?

I understand but with what I have seen I have to recommend an immediate ER visit....I am not here to tell you what you may want to hear...I am here to protect your pet...

Ask Your Own Dog Question

IV fluids and lots of them will hopefully help your dog be able to pass this stuff and probably some oral medicine to help with passing....but IV fluids most important...
