    thekid Chillin' With My Peeps

    My mom think she knows everything and tried to give my dogs foam to lay on. Well since they are beagles one of them ate some of it. My dad told me she wasnt eating and i just [​IMG] because she has ate every meal we have fed her. And I know dogs cant digest foam. I am not sure how much she ate. The vet is closed. And beagles can just keep eating and eating without stopping. Please somebody help me [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Is she active, eating, drinking? If so, I wouldn't worry too much. If not and she seems distressed, you may need to make a visit to an emergency vet. Call your vet's office and their answering service whether live or a pre-recorded message will probably give you the after hours emergency vet info.

    Do you have any way to find out how much of it was eaten?

    Most will usually pass it ok, depending on the amount, but watch for vomiting, signs of constipation, and/or bloating.

    My choco lab has tasted everything under this sun, including foam. If she looks like she got more than she can chew:

    Give her a very *warm* bath
    mix a slice of bread with two eggs and feed it to her
    And give her *one* tums.

    She really needs to see a vet. This is just to hold her off untill they all open [​IMG]
