    Thinking of Blue and you right now. I know you're so worried, but try to keep optimistic that everything will be okay and Blue will be able to pass the squeaker on his own.

    Oh Blue, you're going to drive your poor Momma insane!

    Honey...I know you're sick inside, sorry I was mia today
    but praying for Blue and y'all right now and continuing
    until we hear he's okay.

    Hoping for passage, it can take awhile before doing so.
    So glad you saw him swallowing it and KNOW the issue
    going on. Sending big, loving hugs and knowing Blue will
    come thru this too...he's tough & so are you! Love y'all.

    RIP beloved boy.

    Just got back. So they took an x-ray and did blood work. The blood work was "ordinary" and the x-ray didn't show any obvious intestinal blockage. "There was one area in the stomach that was suspicious but not definitive for gastric foreign material". Quoted directly from report.

    The Radiologist was gone for the night (we didn't get there until after 5) so we have to go back tomorrow morning. Was told that depending on what the radiologist sees in the x-ray, we'll need to do an endoscopy or an ultrasound.

    They also gave him two injections. Cerenia for ant-vomiting, and something called Famotidine which is a gastroprotecant. No idea what that means.

    Thank you so much for your support, well wishes and prayers everyone. It makes it easier to handle.

    Brutus was just on famotdine when he had his partial obstruction. Apparently they can get bacterialsl infections (which he did) from the foreign body and this helps the stomach. I hope all is well tomorrow. I will be thinking and praying for you.

    Thanks for the update, @Blueberrys Mom. Will be praying and sending out positive thoughts and vibes to you guys. Famotidine is also known as Pepcid; it's what's called an H2-blocker and is used in treating things like ulcers and GERD (or gastroesophageal reflux). Hoping that Blue will pass the object on his own soon.

    @Brutus @cali baker thanks for the info. on the Famotidine.

    We took him back this morning, the radiologist didn't see anything on the x-ray either. The vet we had this morning thought he probably passed it, but both me and Chris insisted he didn't. So they did an ultrasound and guess what? there it was. Even the tech said it was a Kong squeaker without knowing what he was looking for.

    They were ready to send him home since he had no real symptoms and the x-ray was fine. But we knew better and insisted on the ultrasound. When the vet came out and said "you were right", I wanted to scream "I told you!!". So yeah, very important to go with your gut instinct!

    So now he's scheduled for an endoscopy since it's in the stomach, and hopefully they'll be able to get it out that way. If they can't, then it's going to be full on surgery.

    I'm trying to stay calm but it's very hard. The fact that he's going under is terrifying. I know it's an excellent animal hospital. It's a non-profit teaching and research hospital with the most modern facilities. They've been around for over 100 years, and I know he's getting excellent care. I mean he had his cherry eye/palate surgery done here. And yet- I dunno, I'm scared shitless and have been crying on and off for the last few hours.

    Oh, as I was writing the above, they called.

    They got it out with the endoscopy (thank god). He was under for 3-4 minutes total. Vet said he did very well, and they already removed the tubes. She said we can pick him up anytime after 4. Good thing is, his stomach is fine the squeaker didn't do any damage.

    Thanks everyone for your support and letting me vent. I've said it before but it's so true, you guys are the best!
