Q. My 6 year old dog ate part of a leather base ball mitt yesterday. He vomited some up, 3-4 times since. He's eating and drinking.

Answered By

A. Did he vomit up pieces? Monitor that he is eating, drinking and not vomiting and having loose stools. Monitor his bowel movements for the pieces of the baseball mitt. If they're small and soft they may pass through. If he starts to vomit/diarrhea and isn't eating or drinking go to the vet. You can purchase a dog laxative to help with the process of removing the foreign bodies.
