Foreign Object In Throat - personal experiences

Foreign Object In Throat experience by - Kristin

I came home to one of my cats pawing at her mouth constantly. I didnt think too much about it until I noticed blood on her paws! She was trying to get something out and was literally shredding the roof of her mouth in distress. I restrained her with a towel [she was a stray I picked up] so she wouldnt scratch me and looked in her mouth. She had a plastic bristle from my hairbrush lodged in her back teeth! With some soothing talk and coaxing I got her to let me pull it out. I was almost panicking I thought Id have to take her to the emer. clinic. Thank goodness I got that out, she would have shredded her mouth apart and still not gotten it out. I really had to pull it to get the bugger. She is much happier!

My cat was pawing at her throat and gagging then blood appeared in the spit that she was bringing up. I took her to the vets after a couple of panicky phone calls to him. He knocked her out and removed a long, sharp blade of grass.
However, it still took days for her to stop gagging, which really stressed me out everytime I fed her. I recommend giving it a few weeks for things to improve aftewards - give soft pate type meals and avoid all cats sweets and biscuits that are too hard and aggravate the throat again.
If your cat returns to being eager for food and catching mice again, be reassured and give it time to heal.
