Exclamation Tucker ate a pincushion!!!

I've been sewing holiday bandannas (very cute, photos later) for the dogs to get their photo taken with Santa later today. I went to put a load of wash into the dryer, came back and reached for the pincushion which was missing. I saw little piles of sawdust on the floor. A second later, Tucker came in with it in his mouth. Got it away pretty fast, but no way to know if any pins went down the hatch. Called the vet who wanted to do x-rays, so he's over there now.

Sheesh! I was so pleased this morning that all the dogs seemed in good shape for the first time a couple weeks. Bella's ear is all better, and Tucker seems to be bouncing back from his prednisone episode. And Tess is doing well on her new meds. And now this!!!! They know me really well over there now.

Arghh!!! Sorry, just needed to rant a lithe.

Vet did not seem too worried. Has a plan all set if there are pins in there. Update later....

There are other threads here of dogs eating pins and Christmas tree ornaments.

One thing to do is to feed him bread so that the bread pushes the pins out.

Keep us updated!

Omg I am so sorry this happened! Just when things seem to be getting better.. I hope he didn't swallow any pins and this will all be behind you soon.

My boy swallowed a needle when he was about 10 months old. Took him to the vet, and saw it on xray. They sent me to the E vet for an endoscopy, in the 15 minutes it took to get there, it has punctured his lung. He came through the surgery and fully recovered......wishing Tucker the best!

Oh gosh, Maddie did the same-ish thing a few months ago. X-rays were definitely in order. I hope all is well with your puppy.

Let us know!

He's OK

Just heard from the vet. Nothing shows up in the x-rays!
