So, over the last week, my 9 month old sheltie has eaten 2 things one ought not eat if one wants to stay out of a vet's office. One he did on a friday night, just to make the weekend (with family visiting from out of state, no less) more exciting. I'll preface this to say that all ended well, "everything came out in the end". 1st item: The belt off of a silk bathrobe. I discovered it missing, but had no real proof he ate it. He was unsupervised for a total of 5-10 minutes. Vet office I called stated that it could pass. Or he might vomit it. But it probably wouldn't show up on xray, being that it was silk. Or maybe I just lost it, and he didn't eat it. So we waited. In the end, smaller bits showed up in his poop within a day. SUnday AM he puked up the larger part. He never went off his food or acted off in any way. Monday AM, just for fun, the rest came out. 2nd item: I left to go to a dental appointment Monday after his walk. I was getting two fillings, so this wasn't my best day. Many hours after I returned home, my 6 year old told me "mom, while I was outside Lars ate my breakfast. It was a plum. Sorry." AKK! a plum pit? Immediate call to the vet. Well, he suggests, we could make him vomit. But it's been enough hours we probably won't get it up. It could pass. He might vomit it up. It might cause a problem. In the end, he suggested I bulk up his food with canned veggies, and watch for it. That was monday. He's been fine, eating, pooping, playing. Today, while we were out, a plum pit mysteriously appeared on the floor of his xpen. Thank goodness. Perhaps I can relax for awhile.
