Squeaker In Stomach

Recommended Posts

Guest hshirlow

Our Sunshine swallowed a squeaker 6 months ago. We rushed her to the vet, she was xrayed which showed nothing, and she was kept for surveillance. We never did see the squeaker pass and figured maybe it was digested or something.

 

Today, she vomited and up came a squeaker! It was filled with a brown fluid (sorry to be graphic) and obviously seemed to have hung around inside her for a while. Is that even possible, that she vomited it 6 months later? It just seems crazy!

Not the first time I've heard of something coming back up weeks or months after being swallowed.:blink:

Oh, yes, entirely possible.

 

Joseph had to have toy parts surgically removed 9 months after he ate them. Trudy has a similar story (IIRC hers involved natural passage), and I'll bet some others do too.

Oh my gosh! That is amazing, so glad it came up with no surgical intervention needed!

Yep, as Jey mentioned, Ryan ate a ball and got sick and managed to puke it up on his own... about 7-9 months AFTER he ate it.

A friend's lab did the same thing. He ate a football and puked it up a year later.

:sick

 

wow

 

hope that isn't what happened to my DH's watch

Huh

 

 

(no, not seriously - he's just misplaced it yet again and now has a four-legged to blame. Much like any gas :lol)

Yep! Ex-DBF's dog ate the top of a kong while staying with me. 2 months later he passed it naturally, whole. :blink:

 

A foster of mine threw up a trainer's glove shortly after his arrival from teh track. 2 months later he vomited the matching glove!

 

I have more, but I'll stop there. ;) It's totally crazy, right?!

I caught Cookie eating a de-stuffed stuffy (courtesy of Buddy) and started putting 2 and 2 together. She would have spells of vomiting, and then finally something that looked mysteriously recognizable would come up. This would be days, however.

 

I finally banned them this last time. I'm not purchasing anymore and I threw most of what they had out.

Yep, my Faolin did it too. Hacked off a hunk of a rope chew toy (unbeknownst to me) & horked it up. Before I could grab it, he swallowed it AGAIN, right in front of me! Took a month to be horked up again. I was faster that time or else he was really tired of it. rolleyes.gif

Amazing but yes I had heard of it too. Solid Gold tells the story of a towel or something that "came out" shortly after a dog was switched to Hund n Flocken. It had been "in there" for months!

Wow - pretty impressive! Thank goodness it came up and never caused obstruction!

 

But I'll be the one to ask the irresistible question: when you were giving tummy rubs, did you ever hear squeaking? DId you think her stomach was doing a lot of high-pitched gurgling recently? Were you walking around, oiling all the door hinges and metal joints because you just couldn't figure out where the squeak was coming from? Did all the other greyhounds run up to her and try to shake her in their mouths to get to the squeakie?

 

But the most important question on my mind: when the squeakie came out, did it still work?

 

:D I'm bad today, but I'm so happy to hear you have a healthy pup. :)

:lol :lol :lol I am guessing no to the last question given the description of it being filled with stomach fluids. :puke

Funny! No, no squeaking. She managed to pop the squeaker and then swallow it. We have banned all squeaky toys since then and have a gorilla with something like 20 squeakers in it hiding in the closet and reserved for when she's an old lady. Hopefully then she may play with it! I just wish she'd have coughed it up earlier - it would have saved us like a huge Penn vet bill.

Know what you mean about the bill.

 

I let Joseph have squeaky toys ... during supervised playtime every day. Then the toys get put away again. He has a couple large squeaky balls that are always available downstairs, but someone is always supervising when he's down there and he isn't allowed to bring them up.

Yup, had a foster pup do almost the same thing! And isn't it amazing that the plastic is whole and not eaten up by the stomach acids.... the same acids that will make a bone into powder and food into poo!

This is what we do too now. We have tiers:

 

- toys that only Neyla gets when I first come home while Zuri & the foster are still in their crates; these are immediately put away after we play

- toys that Neyla & Zuri are allowed to play with unsupervised, currently also put away or kept out of reach

- toys the foster can play with supervised, in toy basket

- a very few toys that can be left out at all times or in the foster's crate (this does not include tennis balls, learned that one the hard way :shakefinger)
