HELP! my 7 month old puppy ate 4 bags of the single serving chip bags (EVEN THE BAGS)
We recently just took in a 7 month old pit bull for a friend that has had no training and we are working with him and he is doing better except that he gets into EVERYTHING! he recently just ate 4 bags of chips the little single servings ones (bags included). He is eating ,pooping,acting normal and his gums are pink but he keeps throwing up pieces of the bags (he even threw up a fully in tacked chip bag). its like every day for the last 3 days he has been puking up at least once a day pieces of the bags. Like I said before he is acting normal, should I wait and just let it pass or should I take him to the vet? I was always told if the dog is eating, drinking and pooping he is fine.

I would keep a very close eye on him. If he's going to the bathroom normally and eating and drinking normally, then you can wait. At he first sign of any distress, I would get him to the vet immediately. You might also call your vet and ask their opinion. Good Luck!

Maybe I am overly cautious, but I would consider daily vomiting a problem!!! I would be at my vets first thing in the morning to make sure he is not already obstructed and to get their suggestions for helping with the problem.
Acting normal does not include daily vomiting in my book!
