My beautiful guinea pig, Buttons, ate a singular bristle from a broom as I was sweeping out her fleece cage. I couldn't get it out of her mouth in time :/
She's still eating and walking around normally, I'm just worried she won't be able to digest it properly and will get sick. Does this require a vet visit? Any advice will help!!

And got the T-shirt

Was it a natural bristle, or plastic?

If natural, she may be ok. If plastic, I'd worry a little more.

Watch her carefully for any signs of pain, failure to eat, or abnormal poop. If you notice any of those, get her to an exotic vet ASAP.

Thank you, I watched her for a couple days and I think she digested it :)
