    OK I couldn't wait called the vet and they said to keep a close eye on them and make sure nothing changes in their habbits. And was informed a x-ray wouldn't show a string so I guess I'll be a worry wart.

    How long and how thick was said "string"?

    Who says Bulldogs can't fly?

    I usually lube up his system with coconut oil and feed him rice to help him pass things.

    Something that small wouldn't concern me in the least. The chance of it becoming a problem is tiny

    I grew up on a farm with all sorts of animals and multiple dogs always eating all kinds of crazy stuff, their digestive systems are pretty tough. Unless it's sharp (something that could possibly damage / puncture their stomach or intestines) or toxic and if they could swallow it no problem it will probably sooner rather than later pass through the exit chute. It is good to always use common sense and keep an eye on things though. Certainly if you notice any out of the ordinary behavior or troubling signs you want to take action quickly.

    I'm one to err on the side of caution too, especially with EB's
