Stick swallowing

Stel just swallowed a small piece of stick. 2 inches maybe. She never swallows stick so I don't know if I need to worry? Do I need to make her puke? She always just chewsandspits but in the heat of tug and keepaway with Max she demolished and swallowed...

vet says just watch her. watch her appetite. hope she keeps eating. to make her puke with something that might be sharp not a good idea.

i know she's a dog and dogs sometimes eat sticks, but when you google and read about the splinters doing this and that and punctures and so on...

she freakin NEVER eats stick

You really are the "go to" person when dogs eat stuff. ;-)

Finally, your Labradoodle is showing her lab side!

The white bread trick works quite well. Rodrick is on a regular diet of sticks, plastic and anything else that can possibly fit down his esophagus. </p>

I keep a loaf frozen in the freezer and defrost as necessary.

This is not a cigar in his mouth!

All dogs in my house eat wood and then poo out wood. Sometimes their poo is more like mulch than poo. I am not recommending you encourage your dog to eat wood but Pan is 9 and so you would be uber unlucky if Stella got splintered. That would be crazy bad luck

I'm not sure luck is streaking in our life right now. But vet said to watch her through Sunday. I am hoping all those raw bones she eats has prepared her system. Though I know raw wood is not raw bone.
