Customer Question
He’s a Labrador and...

He’s a Labrador and he’s not eating!!! He did however consume a large amount of dry pasta last night that he pinched from the pantry! Should I be concerned

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?

He’s on painkillers and anti inflammatories as he was knocked by a car in the week

Experience: Hello, I am a small animal veterinarian and am happy to discuss any concerns & questions you have on any species.
Verified

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you today.

How much dry pasta did he steal?

Any retching, gagging, lip licking, drooling, or vomiting?

Any breathing changes?

Are his gums pink or white/pale? Moist or sticky?

If you press on his belly, any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?

Could he have eaten anything else (ie bones, toys, plants, chemicals, human meds, etc)?
