I can’t decide if this goes in “factual” questions or in the IMHO questions but seeing as I’m looking for facts, I’ll try it here.
My cat had surgery for foreign object ingestion 3 weeks ago and had his stitches removed last week. While I’ve done my best to “cat proof” my house, tonight we had an issue with the trash and before we knew it, he had eaten one of those little red plastic strips that you rip off of cheese packages to get to the zip lock. Some of these were removed from his stomach when he had surgery.
My questions (trying to keep them as opinion-free as I can):
1.) What is the transit time for something like this to appear in his stool?
2.) I went to the pet store and bought a laxative to help him pass it, but is there anything else I can do to try to help this thing pass smoothly through him?
I totally understand that aside from a vet examining him, this is difficult to answer but I’d honestly appreciate any feedback you have.
