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

How long ago do you think she ate it?

What kind of piece was it? Glass, string, a hook, etc?

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

Are her gums nice and pink (not white/pale)? Moist or sticky?

If you press on her belly, does she have any tensing, tenderness, discomfort, or pain?
