Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: needles and thread around Huskys   Tue Nov 24, 2015 4:42 pm

Hi all. Have not posted here in a while. Sunday night while my wife was crafting our Nikita licked the thread while my wife was not looking and proceeded to swallow the thread and needle. It went down clean and was laying in her stomach. Two options, surgery or put her to sleep. This was a no brainer, she is a little sore from the surgery but is eating and drinking and of course sleeping. This was traumatic for me as I was 3 hours away at a hunting camp in Northern Wis. and was not there to help. So please all crafters out there, be carful. It can happen so fast.

so glad she is fine now, i have also heard to feed cotton balls so that the thread and needle will wrap around them and pass ok, again not a 100% grantee but an option.
I don't use hand needles much but Ken found on of my stick pins on the floor this past weekend Sad

My wife went on line after she swallowed the needle and read about the cotton balls but we couldn't see how a 2.5 inch needle was going to pass through without getting caught on her colon somewhere. so my wife opted for emergency surgery as this was late on Sun. night. When something like this happens things turn a bit panicky. Nikita had the thread in her mouth with the needle hanging out, as soon as my wife jumped up to get the needle from her it was down the hatch. Anyway, she is doing fine, incision is looking fine and is starting to eat better. Wish she would drink more, but water mixed with a little milk helps. Any suggestions on health insurance for dogs ? This last incident wasn't cheap.
