Puppy Ate Steel Wool

March 17, 2014, 7:28 PM
Q: Doctor Pup: Let me review your history and I will be back Stephanie: Ok Doctor Pup: The potential for perforation or obstruction still exists even if he didn't eat it. There are some steps you can take at home and some things to look out for. Stephanie: What steps and what should I watch for? Doctor Pup: You need to get Psyllium powder (metamucil is one version) and give about 1/2 teaspoon orally and repeat it again tonight and also three times tomorrow. Make sure you encourage fluid consumption of water or broth. The fluid and psyllium will form a gelatin mass that tries to "wrap up" the steel fibers and move them through the GI tract. Signs to watch for include vomiting, loss of appetite, bloody or black stools or straining to defecate. Let me know if you see any of these or if you have other questions. If all is still well in 2 days he should be fine. If you notice any problems send word through the forum and I will help decide what you should do. Continue to feed him normally.
