Pets that eat objects they shouldn't can present any number of ways. Sometimes they will act fine for a while after ingestion until the object becomes lodged in the stomach or intestines, and other times they are ill immediately. Clinical signs range from not wanting to eat and lethargy to vomiting and abdominal pain. If the object ingested was toxic, the clinical signs can vary even more. If your pet is vomiting occasionally, even if they hold down some of their food or water, there could be an object stuck in their GI system that is partly obstructing the stomach or bowls. If you suspect your pet has eaten an object, contact your veterinarian immediately‚Ķ
