What Happens When Dogs Eat Styrofoam?

Answer

Dogs are notoriously curious, and they may accidentally ingest Styrofoam as a result. In most cases, the dog will chew it up and spit it out. However, if the Styrofoam is fully ingested and not passed normally like everything else the dog eats, it could cause an intestinal blockage that is only correctable through surgery. Your vet should be contacted if the Styrofoam does not reappear within 24 hours.
