    Default ate a squeaker!!

    I got home and notice Pickle had ripped open a toy and the squeaker is no where to be found - I'm pretty sure she ate it. Not sure how long ago this happened but within the last 4 hours. Any ideas? She is 35-40 pounds, to give an idea of her size. I feel like a dumba$$, thought I picked up all the squeaker toys before I left.

    Hi, first of all take a deep breath. You're not a dumbass, it's happened to all of us at one time or another. My male Bulldozer is a bully goat, he eats everything and everything that's not nailed down. I don't understand how they can swallow these objects and not choke on them. He's eaten socks twice, he ate a part of a Kong Wubba toy, he's eaten rocks, a piece of a plastic bag, and just last week he pooped out a dish cloth?.?. Have no idea where he got it from. Everything he's eaten he's pooped out, and he once threw up a sweat sock. Pickle will be okay, and will pass it eventually, it may take a week or so, but it's a small object, and it's smooth, it's doesn't have any sharp edges so won't puncture anything. Just keep an eye on him, and you have to be a poop CSI agent, check his poop everytime he goes, until he passes it. The signs you want to watch for are diarrhea, vomiting, and drooling, as these are signs of an obstruction. I don't think a small object like a squeaker will cause an obstruction, and will probably pass through without any problems. Try not to worry too much. Keep us posted.

    I agree 100% exhale mama things have a way of working out, watch the poop and in a few you should be able to find it.

    Ditto to what everyone else has said. It has happened to many of us. One of mine chewed off Gumby's arm (dog toy), and i found this green rubbery thing waving at me from a pile of poop one day. Pickle we be okay.

    Guinevere got a squeaker once too! She's about the same size as Pickle. She threw it up whole the next morning, on my bed :S

    Well finally we retrieved the squeaker. Pickle threw it up after 8 days and it looked brand new after all that time.
    I was on the CSI poop patrol but at 4 am this morning she decided to get rid of it the old fashion way. Either way I'm glad its out of her.
