Someone Chewed It Up.....

My dh and I went out to dinner tonight. When I got home I find a chewed dinosaur toy. It was made out of that rubbery plastic stuff??? I don't know who chewed it. A lot of it is gone. My grandsons were over this past week end and I have no idea where the dog(s) found it. Now I am worried. A lot of it is missing. If it gets stuck inside.....what should I be looking for? How long should I expect it to take to pass or make them sick? I always put Mem in her crate when we leave, but we were not going to be gone very long ,so I left her out. Why, didn't I just put her in her crate. It's my fault. :weep I can't take much more. :weep:weep Of course, I really don't know who chewed the toy.

Oh Linda! :grouphug

 

Watch the poop for a few days and hopefully you will see the pieces. I would pay special attention to Memmy ;)

I have no choice but to pay attention to Mem. She is my shadow and lap dog you know. I would bet my life it was her. The stinker.

It all depends on how small she chewed it, but there's a good chance she'll be fine.

 

Watch for vomiting, straining to poop, going off her food, drinking a lot (some do that if their stomach is sore), also looking anxious and standing with the belly tucked up and the back arched, head low. That last one is a sign of severe abdominal discomfort/pain.

 

If she's eating and drinking normally and pooping on schedule and seems lively - or as lively as usual - just keep an eye on what passes. If she shows any of the signs above, get her looked at. Good luck! :goodluck

All fingers crossed here!

 

FWIW, of all the Unapproved Objects that dogs in my care have eaten over the years, Joseph's adventure has been the only one that caused a problem. Most such things pass without difficulty.

I was late for work this morning because I was checking 5 greyhounds poop. I had a stick and was really checking. If my boss ask me why I am late.......do you think he will believe that one? Everyone seems fine and all poop was normal this morning. I keep all my gransons toys in a locking container. I looked under the sofa this morning hoping to find more toy. There is still of lot of that body missing. Still hoping I find more of it.

Thanks, Silverfish. It helps to know just what I need to be looking for.
