Praying for Remi hope all goes well!
He ate a piece of a toy and it's lodged in his intestine. He's been puking all day and shivering.
Looks like he Remi is going to need surgery tomorrow. Thank God for care credit... Hoping our regular vet is less than the 5k we were quoted at the emergency hospital. Either way it's a must.
Please wish us luck. I'm nervous about the line of credit. I've never carried a balance, and I feel terrified that the finances are going to get out of control. I also hope Remi makes it safely through the night and all goes well tomorrow.
UPDATE: Our regular vet was able to see Remi today with a possibility of surgery. The good news is that the piece of toy has moved through his bowels quite a bit, but not enough where they can go in and get it without cutting him open. The vet and I decided to see if he can hold water without puking, and if so, we can try to let him pass it on his own. He'll be on fluids to try to keep him hydrated so it'll be easier to pass. If he pukes the water up, we're going to have to go in and get the stupid thing. The doctor thinks he might be able to cut him open and then force the toy through the intestines without having to cut them.

Thank you for all the love, fun and teachings
OH man, we will be praying for Remi, and hope he does OK tonight. When Diezel had an obstruction and needed surgery, our vet only charged us $1400.00, so I hope your vet is about the same. Please let us know how he does.

Aww poor Remi. Sending love, hugs, and prayers that his surgery goes well, and he has a quick recovery. Last year Dozer swallowed a sweat sock, and we brought him to the vet, he was vomiting, drooling water from his mouth, and he was very lethargic. He acted himself in every other way eating, drinking, playing. The vet took xrays, gave him IV fluids, pain medication, and kept him at the office until the evening. When she sent us home, she gave us 3 cans of fibre food, that we fed him 1 Tbsp per hour or two, and she sent the X-rays home with us, and called the emergency vet hospital, and told them that we would more than likely be coming with Dozer with emergency surgery that night. But we dodged that bullet, and at 8:00 pm, he went outside for a potty break, and he was able to pass the sweat sock. The next day when she called to check on him, she couldn't beleive he was able to do that, and not need surgery. I hope Remi is lucky and passes this or throws it up before tomorrow, but if not I hope he has a quick recovery from his surgery. They are such silly little dogs, they eat everything. Please keep us posted on how he does.
This is a pic of the sock that he passed.

LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.
Oh no!!! I'm so sorry, having been through this same thing this year I know the worry you are feeling. . How long ago did he eat it?

So sorry! Poor Remi. What exactly did he swallow? Hope he passes it in the middle of the night or by morning. Thoughts and prayers for you all and Remi from Missouri. Good Luck!
