Our question this week was:

My Yorkie Pomeranian cross dog ate a round piece of bubble gum. He swallowed it whole. Will it hurt him? Should I be worried?

Stacie Jackson


Answer

Hi Stacie– thanks for your email. Bubble gum does not cause a problem in most dogs. It will probably soften as it gets to his stomach and he should pass it on though.

Signs of a problem would be vomiting, lethargy, lack of appetite and/or abdominal pain.

An article that might be helpful to you is Dangerous Foods: Are They Harmful to Your Dog? and Gastrointestinal Foreign Bodies in Dogs.

Best of luck!
