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.

Hi everyone
Would just like to say a quick Hi. We stumbled across the forum looking for info on what to do when a Husky swallows a squeaker. Our devious little madam stole a toy off the side and ate the tail complete with squeaker while I left her with my boss and ran to the shop to grab lunch.
Our Husky is a 7 month old called Floki - Norse goddess of mischief - certainly is too but we love her all the same.
Chris & Kelly

This is Floki a few months back.

Welcome! This is a great place for info and advice.

As for the squeaker, well, it depends. Squeakers come in different sizes. If it was a smaller one, you may not have any issues. A 7 month old husky should be a fairly large dog, and it's possible the squeaker will pass through without any issues and minimal discomfort.
If it's a larger squeaker, it may become lodged and cause issues.
Several things you can or should do:

1. Watch her health and behavior. If she starts eating less, or is having problems going number 2, you'll want to contact your Vet asap. Lethargy, vomiting, tender tummy area, or other behavior can be an indication of a problem also. These are signs that the object may be lodged and causing a problem.

2. Feed her some canned pumpkin. Not the pie filling stuff, but the straight up pumpkin pie in a can without additives and seasoning. Dogs love the stuff and it can help lubricate her insides allowing the device to move out of her system.

3. Call your Vet now and talk to them for advice. I'm just some idiot on the internet, your Vet has training and experience.

Hi there
Thanks for the advice. She is now fairly big yes. So far it does not seem to have bothered her any. i think you are correct and the best idea is just to monitor her and see if it passes over the next day or so.
Thanks
Kelly

You said the tail *and* the squeaker...does that mean she swallowed material as well? That *could* be an issue then because it could create a blockage, and that would be very bad. Kmanweiss gave very good advice, I would only stress that if she has issues going no.2, it becomes an emergency and you have to act fast.

Welcome to the forum, I just posted in your other thread, your Floki is gorgeous!

Ah, Floki, so cute. I had a Loki and he lived up to the name. I was wondering if you got the name from Norse Mythology or from the show Vikings? Smile

Hey Loki and Floki are interchangeable. Goddess of mischief from what we found in our research. Its also same for both male and female.

It's an awesome name! I find the name Loki or Floki definitely suits the husky traits.
