Gastrointestinal Foreign Body in Dogs Page 2


Preventative Care

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

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