What should I do if my dog ate wet cement?

He did not eat very much but he still ate it.

In small amounts there is nothing to worry about. But keep an eye on him and if there is any unusual behaviour take him straight to the vet.

Make sure your dog drinks plenty of water and watch him carefully, but he should be fine. The acid in his stomach should keep the cement from doing any damage.

Since your dog didn't eat very much of it, then there is nothing that needs to be done. The stomach acids will keep it from hardening and will digest it.

You should immediately take your dog to a vet. Wet cement can cause blockage in his intestines or it might stick to an organ, which can kill him. The vet will be able to take x-rays to see if it's blocking anything. If it is, surgery might be required to unblock him.

Just watch your dog carefully make sure he is not doing anything out of the ordinary. You can feed him a small amount of Vaseline it helps move things through their digestive system.

It really depends on how much your pet ate, if it was just a little the cement will act kind of like an antacid, if alot see your vet.

Well, it could be hazardous to his health. If you notice any changes in his skin and texture, then take him to the vet right away. Otherwise, he should be okay.

If all of the foreign object has not passed through the dogs digestive track yet, he needs an X-ray taken. An obstruction in the bowels can kill the dog.

I would say first thing is to contact your vet and get his advice he would know what to do. If you can get him to expel it that would be great. If you can have him eat some wet dog food to let him have the runs it would help to push it out. You could induce vomiting also.


Answer by  Dreamlight (856)

My advice would be to get him/her to a vet immediately. I know that's pretty general advice, but for something like that you need a qualified professional.


Answer by  katharine (3981)

You should immediately take your dog to the vet. Wet cement is sticky and can get stuck in his intestines. If it gets stuck it will block his intestines and can kill him. He might need surgery to remove the cement, and the longer you wait to take him to the vet the more trouble he could be in.

I would call the vet right away that sound super dangerous the vet would know right away what to tell you to do for it or if they needed to see the dog.

As you are unaware of the exact amount your dog swallowed I urge you to bring the dogs to the vets asap to ensure there has been no damage.
