So they opened her up this morning and found what they described as "A piece of orange plastic in her intestine about the size of half a golf ball." The operation went well, no complications, and if everything goes according to plan, she will come home on Thursday. So, it wasn't bloat after all. I've searched the house, yard, and garage. I can't find anything made of orange plastic that might relate to her problem. This is the 2nd time she has ingested a foreign object and had to have surgery. Am I a bad doggy parent? Honestly, we live in very clean, organized surroundings. And we do try to watch our dogs and stop them from picking up anything they shouldn't. I'm going to talk to our trainer about training them not to pick things up unless they get permission. I really don't want to have to put some kind of muzzle on them. But I can't take too many more episodes like this!

    Owow, ow, it is great that she is going to be OK and you got her to the ER I time to get that thing out of her. I had a recent operation with Banks , thanks to a stone that we had no idea she had eaten.... They are just to fast.

    hugs to you and Lily

    Depends on the object. In Baxters case it was a spongy yet firm soft material. Because of this it was invisible on X Ray, as X ray is told to ignore soft tissue and only image dense objects.

    They did ultrasound and also couldn't spot it.

    The key was lack of bowel movements. Super watery dripping mouth for no apparent reason. Pale gums. And vomiting within an hour or two of eating.

    If blockage is in the stomach not the intestines, I believe they can still have bowel movements.

    Ultrasound is typically a better alternative to X ray.

    EDIT: glad everything is okay! One thing I've learned through all of this: be very aware of the symptoms of blockage, because your vet MIGHT NOT BE!!!!!

    Prayers and best wishes. I've heard that when a dog gets fixed, they can staple the stomach to help prevent bloat. Not sure if it's for all breeds, or if I'm totally wrong.
