My puppies ate dryer lint and puked. Help!

My two 9 week old puppies just ate dryer lint. They acted really weird first then were rubbing their faces on the ground and making weird noises, then they puked. I gave them water and they went right to their beds and are now asleep. Should I be concerned? The lint was not in the puke.

Dryer lint can cause intestinal blockage. Please take them to the vet asap. Good luck .

I second that, this could be a very serious problem, better be safe than sorry and take them to check if all is ok.
Good luck!
