Cat Litter Dangerous to Dogs

Post by Kenneth Cai » Fri, 18 Jul 1997 04:00:00



Hi All,

I recently heard of a dog that had to have surgery to remove a chunk
of the "clumping" type cat litter that he eaten. I understand that it
formed a baseball sized clump in his stomach.

Hi Ken,
From personal experience I can tell you, you bet it can clump up in
there!
I was fortunate, surgery wasn't necessary. But it's the clumping type,
the fine powder, that's the worst. I understand it's not so good for
the cat either.
In my case, a weekend at an emergency clinic while my dog was being
given
barium was enought to move it through the bowels.
