3. Foreign Body Ingestion and Obstruction

You can’t watch your dog or cat all the time. That would be impossible. But you can try and pet-proof your environment as much as possible to avoid the cost of emergency gastrointestinal surgery to remove a foreign body (toy, shoe, string, etc.)

Risk factors:

  • Young animals
    Children in the home
    Messy environments
    Pets that are not monitored in or out
    Awareness of a particular pet’s “oral fixation”
