DR.J :

Hi , I'm James DVM MRCVS and would like to help you with your question

DR.J :

how long ago was that

JACUSTOMER-tps8mmnu- :

about 5 minutes

DR.J :

Ok , in principle the Sillica gel bags used today are non toxic

DR.J :

They usually pass harmlessly via the digestive tract with out leaving a trace .

JACUSTOMER-tps8mmnu- :

so should I just keep an eye on him

DR.J :

Where were these taken from ?

DR.J :

was it inside a drug container or a shoe box ?

JACUSTOMER-tps8mmnu- :

it was in a new laptop case

DR.J :

Ok, thats good

DR.J :

the most dangerous thing is eating one which was inside a drug container which could carry some of the drug particles with it .

DR.J :

As long as both ate a very small amount (3 bags between them) I would not be too concerned .

JACUSTOMER-tps8mmnu- :

it was one small bag between them

DR.J :

could you more or less describe the size of the bag to me

JACUSTOMER-tps8mmnu- :

about an inch long really small

DR.J :

Very good.

DR.J :

In that case I will monitor only as they are not toxic and will make their way out nicely

DR.J :

if at any point of time , Teddy or his friend starts showing any other sign which might worry you , then contact your OHH vet

JACUSTOMER-tps8mmnu- :

thank you

DR.J :

Is there anything more I might be able to help you with?

JACUSTOMER-tps8mmnu- :

that is it thank you

DR.J :

excellent . I wish all the three of you a quite evening

JACUSTOMER-tps8mmnu- :

thank you

DR.J :

you are welcome and please make sure to rate our conversion before you leave . if at any point of time you need my help again , let me know
