Apparently glass wont show up on x-rays either so there is not much I can do but wait and hope for the best:'(

    I have a Pug who ate a glass bulb almost 3 years ago, that one contained mercury and she got SO sick but she is now fine, so I have hope. It's a bit hopeless in this country cos people just throw stuff in the nature (or into other peoples yards) I'm checking for **** in our garden all the time, rarely find anything though but today I was unlucky

    I'm the most paranoid person on the planet and I just cant believe this has happened
    You know that part just makes me so mad... Why the hell would someone just throw a lightbulb into your garden?!! What is wrong w/people?!! I get so mad when I see people litter in any fashion... just pure LAZINESS!!! Ok off my soapbox for now... LOL

    Thanks @BruceP, the vet told me to give them lots of food so it would mix with the glass if there were any. I searched their mouths very well after I found them chewing it and before I fed them cos I was scared that they would swallow any glass they had in there while eating. Found one piece of glass in their mouth folders but no cuts and no bleeding...

    I somehow dont think they would swallow it... also it would be very hard to do cos the glass pieces are convex so it wont be a smooth task to get it down... but still, it's freaking me out

    Wow... you have every right to be scared. I would have a hard time communicating myself if Harlea had eaten something like this. Sending lots of thoughts and prayers your way.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Ja I get angry too, this is Africa, nothing surprises me anymore I'm always so paranoid cos here it's very common that pets gets poisoned for what ever reason. Know of so many people who has lost esp cats to poison Also there is some kind of mix they put in empty plastic bottles that explodes if you pick it up... and we all know dogs love to chew plastic bottles. It's more common in the big cities and we're living in a very small town but you can never be to careful. What people don't understand is that my dogs are my kids and it will kill me if something happens to them. Sadly the majority here has no compassion for animals

    I'm so sorry... Here in TN people just put dogs on chains & leave them outside 24/7. They are not considered family, and they will get rid of them at a drop of a hat if they become too expensive, or bark, or whatever stupid reason they come up with!!! Our poor rescue's around here are filled to the brim constantly!!! It makes me very angry...

    It's so sad it's the same here @ddnene, not many let their dogs in the house even. I don't understand it, why even get a dog if you're not going to enjoy it? People say I don't understand cos I don't have kids but I think they are the once who don't understand. At least here there are not many, if even any bulldogs in the rescues. I do see them sometimes in adds but people want good money for them so they will go to decent homes. Luckily vets here are relatively cheap so most can afford health issues if there are any. We "rescued" a neglected bulldog, Joey, she was locked into a small brick court yard for 27 month until the owner decided to sell her. Jep, we had to pay they stupid owner to save the poor bully, but I would gladly do it again. She's the sweetest thing

    Boeboe and Bennie are still acting normal... they are a bit depressed cos I closed the door so I can keep an eye on them all the time, but that is normal too. But I guess it's to early to tell anything yet anyway...

    what Bruce said...i would think if the chewed and swallowed anything there would be cuts inside the mouth somewhere........they were probably just investigating i know though, you will be on pins and needles until enough time has passed !

    Ja, I've been digging in their mouths all day, they are a bit tired of me right now... haven't found anything suspicious like cuts or blood so I'm a tiny bit calmer now, but I doubt I'll sleep much tonight will lay and listen on them snoring<3

    They've been acting normal all day, eating, playing and snoozing... my problem is how long time is "enough time"??? I know for sure I could take this too far... Think I'm gonna have to have a less hysterical conversation with the vet this weekend and see what they say... I barely remember anything from the call earlier today

    not sure how much time it would take....i do know that when forde was around 2 yrs. old he had one of the hard plastic blue pools , he loved it and would play with it non stop, with no water in it flip it over, get under it and run around with it over top of him , very freaky looking lol.....then he got to where he wanted to chew on it..... i thought no biggy.....but one day as i was doing yard work he chewed a place about the size of a dinner plate out of it and ate several pieces of it, the pieces were sharp....i was just sick...i would see sharp slivers of it in his poop each time he went.....it took him about a week to pass it all ...... maybe someone knows better about the length of time something like this takes......keep us posted on how it goes....

    Thank you @FRODE'SMOM, I'll investigate their poop and if there isn't any sign of glass or blood for the next two weeks I guess I can maybe let it go... but I know for sure if there is anything abnormal ever from now on I'll worry. I'm the queen of worrying

    Very cute with the pool besides the chewing part of course I've been planning to get one of those pools for my kids this summer, will remember to check on them so they don't eat it...
