Pet Foreign Body Ingestion

Common Objects

Pets often swallow items like toys, clothing, or small objects, which can lead to serious health issues.

Symptoms to Watch

Look for symptoms like vomiting, diarrhea, lethargy, and changes in appetite as signs of foreign body ingestion.

Your vet may use X-rays, ultrasounds, or other tests to identify the location and nature of the ingested object.

Treatment Options

Treatment varies based on the object's size and location. Surgery might be necessary to remove the foreign body.

Preventive Measures

Keep small objects, strings, and harmful items out of your pet's reach to prevent accidental ingestion.

Pet Safety Priority

Knowing the risks and taking quick action ensures your pet's safety. Don't hesitate to seek professional help.
