    @ddnene Blue sounds like Bella. This is the second time he's swallowed something he shouldn't have, and he's only one!

    My hubby & I were just laughing about all the crazy things that Ms. Bella did… she didn't eat NON food objects though. I guess in the wild she could possibly eat a bird, and the vet told me that Bella could smell the starfish in those decorative things. She was such a hot mess… LOL

    @brutus77 yep! I have the number of the nearest 24/7 emergency vet clinic here. Hoping I never need to use it though.
    I hope not too but with these babie it is good to Have handy. I would keep calling the vet until someone answers you.

    Just found this post. Ruggles had a Beanie Baby in and out of his stomach for a month. He would barf it up and eat it again at night, so I wasn't sure what it was. Finally he puked it up, it was early morning light but I clearly saw "Wormy". Of course he had eaten again by the time I got outside, so I woke up his vet in the wee morning hours and took him in for a forced puke.

    Mack had eaten a piece of a Humunga Tongue toy. He had the runs during the night and the next day and pooped out several pieces of the toy. With what I had fished out of his mouth I thought I had it all. It ended up with Mack getting a colon resection over a year later. There was a piece he couldn't pass, it stayed in his colon and rotted a few inches of his colon. He ate, pooped, went on walks, played--all normal until he started puking everything up, couldn't keep anything down. This was 9 months after he ate the toy. Took him to the vet, x-rays, barium, etc. nothing showed up. They chalked it up to a sensitive stomach. 3&1/2 months later he started puking everything again, repeated all tests and the foreign matter had corroded enough that the barium picked it up. He had the surgery. He was 3 and a real trooper. If we would have had a forced puke done right away when he ate part of the toy we would have saved him pain and us worry and money. Mack passed on when he was 9 years old. @Blueberrys Mom

    As a bartender, my hands are always wet and get very dry. I bought those little white cotton gloves and some Aquafina (kind of like vasaline) for when I went to bed to help moisturize them. I had a bad habit of pulling them off in my sleep and not knowing it. About 3 years ago, I woke up with no gloves, no big deal right?? I looked all over for the other one glove that was lost in bed somewhere, not to be found. 3 Days later, Vegas starts hurling in the living room, out comes my glove I had NO idea he had ate it!!! Not only did he throw up the glove he spent the next 3 days with severe diarrhea due to all the lotion he had in his system!! Thank Gawd he threw it up, because I would have had NO idea what was wrong with him. I tell you these bully's certainly keep us on our toes!! lol, just keep poop watch, I bet it will pass, prayers that it will!!!

    Thanks everyone, appreciate your responses.

    So my vet called. She said they don't typically induce vomiting for this, and said to give him lots of bread and pumpkin to help it pass.
    She said to just keep an eye on him and if he start vomiting, to take him right in. She also said because it's small and smooth, it shouldn't cause problems if it stays in the stomach for awhile. Something about it becomes dangerous if it's in the small intestine.

    Either way, just like all of you said, watch him.


    Again, thanks so much for your responses, you guys are the best!

    Hi, yes I have dealt with swallowed socks on 4 different occasions with Dozer, the first 3 times, I didn't even know he had swallowed them, but the last time I knew he had, and so I remembered that peroxide could be used to induce vomiting, but was nervous about doing this at home. I called the emergency vet clinic, and was given the same advice as what the above members have already given you, they told me that inducing vomiting can cause nota only aspiration, but there is also a danger of choking on the object when they vomit. They didn't recommend we do this. I would just watch him for signs of obstruction, such as vomiting, diarrhea, drooling water from the mouth, and lethargic behaviour. Dozer ate, drank, played and behaved like normal after swallowing the socks. He always passed them by either vomiting or pooping them out. It usually takes about a week for the object to pass, luckily for you he swallowed a smaller object, and one that is soft and round, so should pass out without any problems. The last sock that I knew Dozer had swallowed, I watched him everyday, and checked his poop everyday for 2 weeks, but he didn't pass anything. The day before we were moving to our new house, he threw up the sock in his crate at 5:30 in the morning. That was a month after he had swallowed it, and the entire time he didn't show any signs. Just watch Blue, look for the signs of obstruction, be a poop CSI agent, until he passes it. If he shows any signs of illness, obstruction, or difficulty of any kind, then take him to the vets. Sending love, hugs, and prayers that he is okay, and passes the piece of toy soon. Please keep us posted.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.
