So we have a designated safe area for the guinea pig to run around. My husband though left a iPhone cable by accident on the floor (unplugged). She ate some of the plastic off of it and he felt awful. Not the wire fibers. How bad is this? Will the plastic she infested be dangerous to her? She just ate 1/4 inch or 1/8 inch of a tiny bit of plastic off it on one side. How common is this? She seems fine. Is this an emergency or will she be ok?

Thanks

Plenty of pigs have survived eating a bit of plastic. Just watch carefully to make sure she continues to poop.

How long until I know if it’s obstructed? 12 hours or less? Their system seems pretty fast so if it was going to clog it would it be within that time?

Just to update. She was perfectly fine, back to eating and pooping up a storm :). She didn’t skip a beat
