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.

So I came home and found a small pack of LED lights on the ground. The light itself is the size of a pea (smaller actually) but there are two metal pieces that are 2" long, thin and strong... it could easily go through an intestine!

I am assuming it is Hailey because she is almost always the one who does this stuff. She is acting totally normal, and so is Koda... and they ran outside and played when we got home... but I'm worried she ate one. I guess I honestly don't think she did... but I don't know if I should do anything.

Without knowing for sure, emergency xrays seem a bit excessive, but I don't want to be an awful mother. With the sharp piece, making her puke could cause more harm than good, I think. I think all I can do is monitor her Sad The next couple of days will suck Sad

Oh No! I hate this kind of poop patrol. All too familiar with it. Hopefully she didn't ingest it and if she did hopefully it comes out smoothly.

We went through this with a small razor blade from a paper cutter. Found all of the pieces, but couldn't find the razor blade and no idea which dog. Both dogs off for emergency x rays. It wasn't cheap. Thank goodness both were cleared, but we still never found the blade scratch

Worried momma = not thinking clearly. The lights were in a clear bag (off of ebay- using them to light our paper lanterns for the tent) so I forgot that we actually knew how many were supposed to be in there. The bag was supposed to have 100 and we counted over that. So IF they ingested any, it couldn't have been more than one... and Heather via text reminded me that something like that would have likely made them choke or gag before going down smoothly.

They will still both be closely monitored, but I do feel a bit better!
