IF YOUR PET CAN CHEW, THEN HE CAN SWALLOW!


An article published in 2008 by Healthy Pet Magazine reminds all pet owners that swallowing foreign objects is very common in both cats and dogs.


Most Common Objects that are swallowed by pets and require surgery to remove:


  • Balls

  • Bones

  • Chew Toys

  • Corn Cobs

  • Hair ties/ribbons

  • Panty Hose

  • Rocks

  • Socks

  • Sticks

  • Underwear

Here are some signs that might indicate this type of case:

  • Lethargy

  • Persistent vomiting or dry heaving

  • Refusing to eat

  • Restlessness

If your pet exhibits any of the above symptoms, please contact us as soon as possible.
