Default Litter issue! Concerned about allergies or blockage!

I just returned from my 10 day vacation, during which my mother was taking care of the hog. I bagged up all of his food so all she had to do was pour in a serving every day and give water, plus cleaning the wheel. My mom decided to pour a scented, clumping, corn based cat litter into his litter pan because she didn't like the smell of the cage. When I got home I was obviously concerned and upset, I dumped the litter out into the garbage and I'm about to change the bedding and give him a bath to get any residue off of him, if there is any. Should I take him to the vet? He's acting normal, not sniffle-y or curled in a ball, but I'm worried if he tried to eat any of the litter and if it will hurt him or cause a blockage. Please advise 😞

I wouldn't be concerned if he's still acting the same way. If you're really concerned keep your eye out for the next few days to see if he starts acting weird. Also check to see if any of the litter got stuck to his private parts, if you haven't yet.
