Shallow Breathing/Panting

Hi all,

After being out for all of ten minutes last night we came home to find Daisy had gotten into the bathroom trash can. This morning after eating her breakfast, I began to notice her lightly shaking, panting, and acting like she was short of breath. This has been going on for about six hours now.

My question is, would eating something like a piece of toilet paper with makeup on it cause a reaction that necessitated a trip to the vet? Or would it be better to just monitor her for the next 24 hours and reconsider a trip to the vet at that point?

If the breathing is shallow and panting I wouldn't hesitate to go the ER vet. Could there have been a pill or anything in the trash?

There was not anything in the trash besides tissue paper and q-tips. She ate her breakfast this morning, has been drinking water, sniffing around when she goes outside. She just passed solid poop which had a good amount of paper product in it. Will keep you updated.

Thank you for checking in! After posting on here I called our local ER vet. She said that given the facts and Daisy's symptoms it would be best to continue to monitor her. She's had quite a bit of paper-filled poop and has been resting all day. She's drinking water regularly but isn't really interested in her food. I'm going to call our regular vet in the morning to find out what the next best course of action is.

Woke up this morning, she was still refusing to eat chicken but was happy to have some apple. I took her to the vet, he wasn't too concerned and gave her an anti-nausea/stomach pain killer to ease her stomach pains.

Glad it isn't anything too serious!

Hopefully she will feel better soon. Maybe keep her diet bland for a few days until her system recovers?
