Advice: Tally ate a bag full of ketchup packets!!

My 4 month old managed to sneak past me and eat several ketchup and mayonaise packets from the local chick-fil-a. I didn't even realize it until she just threw up a pile of them. She seems fine and is full of energy and immediately wanted to eat again, but I'm just worried. What if one one packet is still inside? Should I take her to the vet for xrays or just wait and see what happens?

Thanks as always for your advice.

I would at least call the vet.
I learned a long time ago not to panic and see if it passes first....if it doesnt then panic
You will just need to keep an eye on her and see if she eats and drinks.

Arley got in my purse the other night and ate (yes ate) a whole pack of juicy fruit gum, wrappers and all and I just knew that would clog him up, but nope.

It's amazing what they can eat



Good Luck

Kodie, Cooper & Arley

Thanks everyone for your stories about your dogs. Tally threw up a total of three times and about 10 or so ketchup and mayonaisse packets, mostly empty but a few still intact She never skipped a meal and everything seems to flow through just as normal, with the exception that she had abnormally bad gas for a day. I guess that's what a pile of ketchup and mayo does to her system. Silly dog
