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.

Apparently the little bugger decided to eat a good portion of shipping material, he has been pooping it out, and recently threw up a large chunk. He is at the vets they did not like what they saw in the first set of xrays so they gave him barium and are waiting for it to work through to take more xrays. Worse case he would need surgery. Please keep him in your prayers he is such a good boy! Will post later when I know more! We have no idea how he got this!

Sending good Sibe vibes to Balon. When my Blaze swallowed one of those skinz toys the vet used hydrogen peroxide to get him to vomit. It was within 30 minutes of ingestion though.

I will be thinking about Balon and sending good vibes your way.

My Blaze ate the arm off a toy monkey it was about 3 inches long and an inch around..The vet want to help him pass it by giving him lots of fiber. Well he was eating and pooping normal for 2 days and on the 3rd day the threw it up.

No more like those envelopes new cameras come in, sorta like ultra thin flexible sterene but think the size of a guitar pedal lol. Apparently he ate a lot of it, my son caught him but thought he caught him before he actually ate any.

We just got back from the vet and they want to do another xray tomorrow morning. She doesn't see any extension of the intestines which is good, means probably no blockage, but she wants to check the stomach. Meanwhile we hope he continues to pass whatever is left in there.

I thank god I have VPI! Thanks for all the concerns and prayers keep em coming we ain't out of the woods yet!

Sometimes a little gallows humor really helps Smile

And don't beat yourself up over it. Hailey is a scavenger... she will FIND things to eat that really should never come near a canine digestive system. Sometimes all the puppy proofing in the world doesn't prevent them from getting curious and eating something they shouldn't. It doesn't make you a bad parent... just human Smile

I too have been there with Kody and it's so scary! Luckily he didn't need surgery, but he did need an IV to rehydrate him after trying to throw up the HUGE toy that he ate while we were on vacation. He threw a piece up in the middle of the night, but kept throwing up afterwards. He didn't want to drink or eat anything (so not like him!). Rushed him the vet and they gave him the IV and some high fiber food to help him pass the rest. Vet said that as long as he's pooping it would eventually pass. Which it did, 2 days later!

Praying for Balon!

Well he is not allowed to eat anything until tomorrow mornings xray. He is allowed small amounts of water. He is peeing, and he is pooping a few more small pieces came out (sorry for the detail lol). He only threw up once before I took him to the vet and hasn't again. I am hopeful that tomorrows xray will show nothing left. He is passing a lot of barium too. Just feel so sorry for my guy!
