My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 35+ years. I would like to assist you.

Were the hand warmers used or new?

Did Bella Vomit them up?

She did vomit them up and you can account for the hand warmers?

Dog Specialist: Joan, Vet Tech replied 7 months ago

If she ate the handwarmers and vomited them back up she should be fine. If she did not vomit them up, handwarmers contain Iron and can cause iron toxicity. If they did not come back up she will need to see the ER Vet. for treatment.

It is extermely important that the handwarmers were vomited up. If she has not vomited, please have her seen at the ER. These can also cause an intestinal blockage.

Please hit reply to discuss this information. I am standing by.
