    Yes, take her to the vet asap. Swallowing batteries, especially small ones can cause burns and corosion in her body. Please let us know.

    also include pennies, Jeannie. The zinc content in the Lincoln pennies (minted from 1983 and on are 97% zinc), are also toxic to animals.

    Good article . In this case you should call the emergency after hours vet, and see what they suggest. If she swallowed it whole, then it won't probably leak, and because its a smooth rounded object, it won't puncture, and probably pass through in a few days. My male Dozer has swallowed a spare rib bone, a sock, and when he was at the vet for his neuter surgery, he chewed off and swallowed his gauze and bandage from his IV site. They were about 12 inches long. The vet sent him home with 4 cans of fibre dog food , and I had to feed him 1 to 2 Tbsp every hour for four days, nothing happened, except very loose mushy stools, but the vet said the fibre helps to push things along the digestive tract. A week after he swallowed the gauze, he passed a very very long poop, wrapped around the gauze. Lol. She will be alright, try not to worry to much. I know easier said than done, you won't be able to do that until she passes it. Keep us posted. Hope everything is ok.

    Just got back! They did an x-ray just to make sure but they didnt see anything. I put the battery in a bag and took it with me but it doesnt look like anything leaked out but there are bite marks where she tried to chew crazy Lola! Her tongue looks fine and she isnt in any pain. Im glad I saw her with it and knew what it was and got it out of there fast or I would have a sick bully! The vet told me that if it leaks out inside of them it can cause serious damage and can be fatal so just a warning to anyone seeing this!

    I fed my 2 guys tonight and my little Miss Piggy Blossom who can never seems to get enough food lol, finished hers in record time, and then tried to eat her brother Dozers' food, when I didn't let her, she ran out to the living room, and jumped up on my grandson, who was having a snack of Cherrios and milk and a banana. She grabbed his banana , peel and all and just inhaled it, then she started to devour his cereal . I stopped her and put her in the crate. I hope she doesn't get sick, although it is a banana and peel, it is organic, and she should be able to digest it. But maybe she will throw it up because she didn't really chew it very well. Poor Kaden all he could say was Grandma, can I please have some more cereal. Lol

    I never had dogs that like to eat things like Wilson and Emma do. Did you see my post in the health section of what Emma swallowed last month?

    If you want there's still time to post your story and I'll incorporate it into the article I'm finalizing. If you have a picture of the battery, include that too.
