Gastrointestinal Foreign Body in Cats


Preventative Care

The best way to prevent gastric foreign bodies is to prevent access to objects that could be swallowed. Allow your cat to only chew on toys that cannot be swallowed.

If you suspect that your cat may have ingested something that may not pass through his intestinal tract, contact your veterinarian. Waiting until your cat starts to vomit will make removal of the foreign material more difficult and costly.
