Hi, Welcome to JustAnswer. You're through to Dr Chris, a small animal Vet based in the UK. I am reviewing your question and will get back to you shortly.
Sorry to hear of this with Tilly, I know you must be very worried but I will do my best to help. Could you tell me how long ago she ate the sponge? Do you think she chewed it into pieces or swallowed it whole?
OK thanks for the additional information, just a moment whilst I type my response
Whilst the ingestion of the sponge is certainly a concern, I think at this stage it is appropriate to take a watch and wait approach so long as she remains bright, eating, passing faeces and not suffering from further vomiting, we may find that the sponge is able to pass by itself.
If further/persistent vomiting, lethargy, depression, signs of abdominal pain or other symptoms develop, then she will need to be seen by your vet and have an xray taken and in the worst case scenario, surgical exploration and removal of the sponge.
I hope that answers your question, and perhaps puts your kind at ease somewhat? Please let me know if you need any further help or advice.
