Dog ate pieces of sanitary napkin
So my 11 year old 23lb Jack Russell/Chihuahua mix decided to be disgusting this morning by going into the bathroom and taking a sanitary napkin (wrapper and all) out. He chewed it up and I am pretty sure he ate pieces of it. Not even half of it. As of right now he is fine. Playing, ate some canned food, but it's probably been an hour. I called the vet that is opened today and she said (when I asked) that it is a bigger concern when a whole pad is swallowed. Is that true? I know to watch for the signs of lethargy, lack of appetite, vomiting. What are the chances of him just passing the pieces? Should I go into full panic mode at this time?
