|The saran wrap wouldn't show up on xrays, unless a barium, series was done. However, an obstructive pattern could be seen if the wrapping as blocking the intestines.
The cost difference was just due to the fact that he didn't stay there overnight. There are a lot of 'things' involved with hospitalization and I'm not surprised that an ER vet would cost that much for intensive care.
A bland diet probably wouldn't be a bad idea until his stomach settles down a little (1 part boiled chicken to 2-3 parts boiled white rice). When was the last time he vomited? Generally we recommended that with vomiting, you should let the stomach calm down for at least 12-24 hours before introducing food or water again. It sounds like SQ fluids were given, so these should keep him hydrated until then.
Hope he's feeling better soon!
