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.

Nicky got hold of a roll of toilet paper and shredded it all over my bed this morning. I was able to take about 80% of it away. I'm not sure how much she ate, but she's been vomiting ever since. She's gotten sick about 6 times and nothing has come up except stomach bile. She won't do anything but curl up in a ball and looks sad. I know she's not feeling well, is there anything I can do for her?

We're in the middle of a bad snow storm, so going to the vet at the moment isn't a good/safe option and I don't want to have to take her if this is something that will pass.

Any advise? It's only been about 2 hours since she ate it. She was fine before that.

Funny that you had this problem this morning.. the morning show here had a vet on that answered a question about this thing she said it will pass. I am sure others might have other suggestions.. Have you call your vet to see what they suggest.

She should be able to digest the paper ok, and I know a lot of people who give their dogs cardboard instead of rawhide to help clean their teeth. I'd keep an eye on her and watch for dehydration, and see if she starts perking up. If she continues to refuse food and act lethargic, then I'd consider going to the vet once the snow tapers off.

For the record, we haven't had a single flake here...

And yet, you never lose sight of how absolutely extraordinary that very ordinariness is, how difficult, remarkable and rewarding that fight to be 'just like everybody else' has been."  -Gwen Cooper, "Homer's Odyssey"

Qannik eats toilet paper all the time! For some reason TP, paper towels and napkins type stuff is his favorite. We do our best to keep him out of the bathroom but he sneaks in once in a while. He's never gotten sick from it. Hope Nicky feels better soon!

I did call the vet and she said she should be fine, but if she continues to not eat/drink then they would like to see her. The vet also suggested I try to get her to eat some whole wheat bread or rice for added fiber and 10 MG of Pepcid twice a day to help with the acid in her stomach.

I tried giving her whole wheat bread soaked in beef broth. Nicky smelled it and tried to burry it with her nose and wouldn't eat it Sad

I'm gonna try again in a little bit. She hasn't thrown up anymore since the last time I posted, so that's good news.

Kinda sucks, this is our first big snow storm and the dog's can finally play out in the snow and she feels bad Sad ... Maybe I'll try to get her out there and see if the snow perks her up.
