Bailey as eaten a sock

Post by Lee312 » 27 May 2014, 13:23

Hi all , Bailey decided it was time to pinch a sock but instead of doing his usual run round the garden and being chased he decided to eat it. Been to the vets and they advised to monitor him for the next few days , if he stops eating or starts vomiting then to take him back in. Just wondered if anyone else as had their doodle do this and if they passed it naturally.

Fozzie is a big sock stealer but we have been lucky and they've all gone through him. I know other people have not been as lucky and objects such as socks have had to be removed surgically.

My friend had a Doberman who repeated ate things - they tried everything to keep him safe when they were out but he ate the carpet at one point. In the end he had to be put to sleep as his bowel and colon was so badly damaged.

Fingers crossed it passes through OK. We've all been on poo watch at some time or other - there was one famous incident on here when a sock took 3 weeks to reappear! :lol:

I said there was mischief in those eyes!! :D
Ianto has eaten parts of walking sock... it takes an amazingly long time for them to fully transit... :shock: Our vet told us the same as yours... watch and wait, check that they're eating normally and not vomiting, etc. Good Luck on pooh watch! Hope all goes well. One thing about our doods, they make us much tidier!

No socks here but I've waited for a Lego head to pass through once. My son was gutted when I refused to pick it out, wash it and return it to his toy box!!!! Urghhhh

Yay!!!! I was loo watching a month or so ago when Murphy ate a glove whilst on a doodle meet. It came out about three or four days later!

Bid, my heart pounds every time I see your name on the health section, I worry that Daisy has had another fit. I assume so far all is ok with her?

Im so glad all came out in the end ok. I had a Shih-tzu that ate everything pajamas socks undies galore jeans you name it. I was.on permanent poop watch with her because she was so bad she would knock over the laundry hampers to get at the clothes and if she could get it open by knocking it over she would eat the hamper I had five teenage girls and a 6 yr old it was so hard to keep everthing away from her. I finally had to rehome her she was 7 years old and no signs of stopping i couldn't afford to replace all the clothes she would eat constantly. It was awful I never had another dog that ever would eat clothing and ive always had at least three dogs at all times. She was the only dog that did that. Even my pitbull never chewed or ate clothes and they are known for their destructiveness. But he was great after he grew out of the teething stage. I always make sure the dogs have lot of chews and toys during that time and they are good as long as they know what theirs and whats not.
