Dog ate a dishcloth yesterday.

Dog barfed up dishcloth yesterday.

Dog kept her dinner down, yesterday.

Dog barfed her dinner up tonight.

Dog only does that when she has a blockage in her tummy.

Dog is going to vet today.

Dog’s owners said after the last surgery, the 3rd surgery, that we would not do that again. It’s not the money (although it is between 3-4K). She’s old. She didn’t do well after the last surgery. Can’t keep doing this.

Dog’s owners are worried sick.


Dog barfed up entire tea towel. Dog went to vet. Dog is getting barium meal. If barium meal stays down, dog will not need barium scan. If barium comes up, dog gets barium scan.

Dog has held down water and barium for 2.5 hours, which is a good sign. If she keeps it down for another hour, dog owner will give her another serving of hamburger and rice. If that stays home we MAY say that the crises is averted.

This time.

    My friend’s dog once pooped a heel of a shoe and then started feeling much better. That same dog also ate a baseball and passed yards and yards of string (I think it was a baseball- whatever balls are made of string on the inside).

    I hope the dog feels much better. A dishcloth and a tea towel can do that to you.

  7. Nooo …. poor doggy! Poor, worried pet owners! I’ll be sending prayers up for you.

    She’s a great dog. Little less than a full deck upstairs, but she’s a great dog and I’m glad that she coughed up the problem this morning.

    Oh good grief. Love them, want to strangle them….. how utterly frustrating and worried-sick-worthy. 🙁 I hope she keeps that down.

    Clearly we do not have the market on a dog with a brain the size of a walnut. 🙂 Hope she keeps the barium down and starts to feel better. Ours eats sharp objects–like thumbtacks and the like. Good times.

    Does your dog drink a lot of water? Our old Buck became a voracious eater, and drank huge huge amounts of water. He acted like he was starving all the time. He was in the trash, and he also was eating things that one does not usually consider as foodstuff. The vet said he had Cushing’s disease. He was also old. We never did the testing to find out for sure because it was expensive, and the vet said that he was so old that the treatment itself would kill him, so there was no sense in it.
