How disgusting is that. I think he ate one yesterday. He's pooping normally, but didn't eat any breakfast (which is actually not unusual for him) He keeps gagging, but he has nothing in his stomach. I'm worried about this one. Not so sure how he will digest it. UGG. :no:

You need to call the vet. He should probably be seen. Strings are not easily digestable and he looks pretty young. The gagging is a big concern. I would call right away.

That is just my opinion of course. It is what I would do if he were my puppy.

I think this is a vet call. They expand so I'd be concerned it's stuck if he did.

I'd call the vet ASAP, better yet, just get in the car NOW and drive him there STAT!

I'd be concerned with the expansion, the string, and the materials used in making them that are very abrasive and not at all digestible.

This happened once with Milly and she immediately vomited it up - still took her in to the vet to double check she was fine.

Jingling some choke chains that he is okay.

I would definitely get him in ASAP! If he is gagging, with the expansion and string, I would not chance not having this checked out immediately. Please keep us updated, I so hope everything will turn out OK.

Thank you very much everyone. I talked to the vet and will bring him in this morning. He is acting better, not gagging anymore and running in the yard. He needs to go in anyway to be safe.

I knew someone whose dog ate one and it created a blockage and the dog had to have surgery. I hope your guy passes it one way or another.

Wads of grass here - Max gagged and then up it came. At least this time, it was fresh enough that it didn't look like a half eaten critter, which has happened in the past. He pukes quietly, so if I don't see it, I come upon these lovely things later on.

My golden Max who is now at the Bridge, ate anything and everything. It is a miracle he never had a blockage and lived to be 12. He ate part of our deck,crayons, maxi pads, dog poop, toys, sticks and I am sure a million things I never knew about. I usually knew when I saw them in his poop at pick up time!

Luckily my boys Selka and Gunner are not partial to eating anything but their food and treats.

Timber had a poop in our backyard one day and it had a little piece of paper with a bar code on it!!!
Would have been funny to have it scanned to see what the product was :) but I don't know anyone who would have wanted to be the one to scan it :yuck:

It's that time of year. Pine Cones. And Gilmour is in love with them :( I've heard of "roughage", but dayum....

And sticks are like beef jerky to him.

took the Pud to the beach to collect rocks the other day and what do I find in her poop this a.m.? A million teeny tiny little blue shell pieces from mussels. She must have eaten a ton of them, and I never really noticed..

Some of the older members may remember a thread of mine that I posted after I had pulled a pair of thong underwear out of Sam's butt... it was stuck half in/half out. :doh:

I hope you're pup's okay.....Please let us know.

Along the same lines...My most embarrassing moment with my first golden, Kody was when I was walking him down a busy sidewalk and he nearly took my arm out of its socket when he spotted a (unused - thank God) giant feminine maxi pad laying on the sidewalk....What it was doing there...I have no idea! He had the jaws of death grip on it and I had to run all the way home with him (and the pad sticking out both sides of his mouth) to get a really good treat to trade for his prize! :eek:

When my sister and I were teenagers...we usually cycled around the same time, surprise surprise...lol...but on more than one occasion, our little jack russel/weaner dog mix got into the bathroom garbage can and ate MANY used tampons. I still can't believe it but she never got sick from it.
