    Will be thinking of you and Beefy tonight. Hoping that it's a simple tummy ache too.

    Hi, I am just reading this thread now, and saw that Carol tagged me to help you with advice on swallowing objects and potential obstruction. My male Bulldozer is a habitual sock water, he has eaten 3 sweat socks in the last year, and also a dish cloth, so far he has been able to pass them. The first sock he ate, he threw it up, but the two others and the cloth he pooped them out. The signs of an obstruction usually start with vomiting, and or diarrhea, then continued diarrhea, and drooling water from the mouth, they will usually play, eat, and drink normally, at first, and then begin to get sick. The next symptoms are being lethargic, and quiet. The first time Dozer got sick, we didn't know he had eaten a sock, and we took him to the vet, she took x-rays which didn't show what he had eaten, but it did show a shadow in his intestines, and she could feel a mass in his tummy. An x-ray won't show material, but will show a mass, but a barium x-ray will show materials. The vet gave Dozer IV fluids, pain medication, and a laxative. We took him home with a high fibre food which we had to feed him a Tbsp once every 2 hours. That night he went outside tonhomto the bathroom, and he was able to pass the sock. The vet was very surprised, as she was pretty sure he would need surgery to remove it. Keep an eye on Meaty, take him to the vet, to make sure he is not dehydrated from vomiting or diarrhea, and that he's not in any pain. The vet explained to us that Bullies don't show pain, but she could tell that he was in pain, and she said that whatever he was feeling, times that by 10, because bulldogs have a high pain threshold. Your vet will probably feel his tummy, and take an x-ray to start, to see if there is any mass in his stomach. Most of the time, they are able to pass the objects, but you want to make sure it's not causing any problems, or obstruction, a you will have to be a poop CSI agent, and watch Meaty's poops to make sure he does pass the pieces of sandal. I hope he is okay, and if he did swallow some pieces, I hope he is able to pass them without any problems. Please keep us posted on how he's doing, and what the vet said. Sending love, hugs, and prayers to you and Meaty.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    Well as the night has progressed beefy is up and running around and being active and waaaay past his bed time lol. I am glad he is up and running, but he is still going to the vet tomorrow and it seems like he might have his appetite back as he is roaming the floors for crumbs. I am hopping it was just an upset stomach, but we will find out tomorrow. I have checked his poops and they all look normal. Thank you all for you're help. I will keep you all updated.

    Such great news! Being a pro poop investigator is part of the job of being a bully parent.

    When Vegas was a baby.....we would take him to our friends house who had 2 little boys. They would tire him out and he would tire them out. We did this until I was out cleaning poop and I found an orange dinosaur! -wild-world-dinosaurs-dinosaur-playset-play-set-12-figures-boys-girls-fun-toy-3955-jpg


    That had to hurt coming out!

    Hey everyone...Update on beefy. He went to the vet had x rays done and has been passing what he ate. He I back to normal now. He is running around and eating and drinking water. He is playing with his toys and not sandals. He did break out in hives yesterday from the experience at the vet, but returned to normal after giving him a Benadryl. He must have been super nervous. He gets these when he stresses out or is nervous about a new environment. The vet asked to put him on a bland diet for a few days. She also prescribed him some medication. She did says there was a huge gas bubble in his intestine probably from whatever had been obstructing it. I said more gas great. As if he didn't have it already. lol. Thank you everyone for your support, best wishes and help. Happy thanksgiving! I will be posting pictures up soon.
