    @2BullyMama @brutus77 @bullmama @Blueberrys Mom

    You guys won't believe what happned this morning at 4am, Tyson threw up a sock!!! We were in dead shock, I knew something was going on, and I can't believe 2 X-rays, and an ultrasound both missed it. Well, they said there was an area in question, but nothing alarming! We rushed him to the ER vet right after, they did X-rays again & this time we paid extra to get them sent to a radiologist for review. Bc there was one area still "iffy" - the radiologist report came back clear showing no foreign bodies, but they won't 100% guarantee it. They said the only for sure way is to go in his stomach, and I know you all aren't too familiar with us but we almost lost Tyson in August of this year bc he went it into respitory attack while coming out of anesthesia due to prostate issues a moment I never wish to relive - bc they had told us to come say goodbye to him. I'm still tramitized by that experience. I'm not sure what to do next other than monitor him. He's still on bland diet & on Baytril for his UTI. Tyson's never been one to eat things so this is all new to us. For those that have had experiences like this, do they get better after it comes up? Part of me is still nervous, but part of me is so thankful he got it out. I've been losing sleep listening for him at night. They gave him 36mg of famodine & sent us home this morning. He still seems not 100% so I didn't know if it takes a while?

    Signed, "stressed on Christmas" lol

    @TyTysmom -
    Look at it this way, it's a christmas gift. The best kind you could of got. He got it out, and he's going to be fine now.

    The shot they gave him is going to help settle his stomach and alleviate the acid. Blue got it too after he had to have an endoscopy to get his squeaker out.

    I'm confused about the sonogram, you rushed him to the ER vet. ER to me means a veterinary hospital. They have radiologists on staff just for this, to read x-rays, sonograms, etc. Why would you have to pay extra for this???
    We also took Blue to a 24/7 vet. hospital and the radiologist was the one that read his x-ray and ultrasound. That's what they're there for!! It's part of the service when you take these images. It should never cost extra.

    I'd file a complaint with the hospital over this. It's beyond ridiculous that the fee isn't included in the actual x-ray, sonogram.

    I mean had the radiologist read it initially, you may have found out sooner.

    Just read this and so happy that Tyson vomited the sock! That was the best gift you could have gotten for Christmas, and only EBN people could understand THAT gift!! Hope he will get back to his perky self very soon!

    @Blueberrys Mom Yes, it sure was a 24/7 ER - the doc on staff looked at them this morning but said if we wanted a radiologist to look at it, we had to pay an add'l $75. We did of course, I mean this whole thing from start already has us over $1k, what's another $75. And you're right... I too was confused about it, but when your in a daze & scared - you just do whatever. The reason it came up is bc I asked if he saw anything else... Meaning another sock, something, anything. That's when the extra $ came in. Ugh. At this point I just want him better, he's still doing the lip smacking thing which is what he did every time he was about to throw up. So I wonder if it's the acids like you said that need to settle. I Appreciate you all here bc it's my only way to vent & have someone understand thanks

    Thank you so much, trust me when I saw the sock I ran to pick it up, and felt such relief! Part of me is still scared but that's me. His belly is still making all kinds of noises & he seems tired. Poor guy I bet this is the culprit behind all this crap besides the stupid UTI that decided to join. I don't even know where the heck he got the sock or when!!!

    You can get famitodine in Walmart, or drug store, if you need more.

    My exact thoughts when I saw it. I hope he starts to feel better soon. He's still a little out of it. On Monday I'm going to contact the doctor who usually sees him there to ask about the X-rays.

    Wow..... Having several obstructions in the past and one surgery, I am thankful the sock came up. Has he eaten? Bland diet is what I would give him right now, now that the sick has surfaced his tummy may feel very empty- which can cause nausea still.

    I have just read this thread and I'm amazed that they didn't find the sock before he threw it up! I've had dogs throw up some big stuff before, but never had a blockage, so I don't really have any experience or knowledge about swallowed things. But I know it's not uncommon for dogs to eat socks and you'd think they would find it before you incurred a $1,000 bill! I'm so sorry. I hope Ty is feeling good soon!
