My cat has just found and bitten into a glow bracelet. It doesn't

Resolved Question:

My cat has just found and bitten into a glow bracelet. It doesn't look like much fluid has gone from inside but my cat was running about constantly licking his lips and salivating. I wiped his mouth with a cloth of Luke warm water once I realized what had happened and he seems to be fine now and has finished eating his dinner as well. will he be ok?

Hello. My name is***** will be happy to help you. The liquid in glow bracelets are minimally toxic. At most, they may cause irritation to the eyes and mucous membranes, which that seemed to happen with the salivating. I don't expect any toxicity to any organs, though. He should be okay. Just continue to watch him and report any further problems, such as lack of appetite, vomiting, abdominal pain or bloody stool. I would be more concerned if he swallowed the glow bracelet. That can cause an obstruction. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns. Hope this helps.
