Sorry if you are eating your dinner, but Deefer seems to have ingested a plastic ?wheel. He has vomited twice with lots of grass added in. very bouncy and drinking still - is this a dog thing or should i be worried. Thanks.

Hi Sue, poor Deefer.... no eperience though... do you think he has brought it back up? How big is it? I'd be inclined to observe carefully but depends on how big it was. Mable vomitted a stone that she had obviously swallowed, unbeknown to me, whilst she was eating a bone, the morning after. Hope he is ok and that a trip to the vets is nt required x

How big is the wheel? If it is tiny, I don't think I would be worried, but otherwise, I'd be takign him to the vet if I was you. I seem to remember Amanda's Lady having a few problems from bits of plastic she had chewed getting stuck.

Inca when a puppy swalowed the soft rubber bit of a baby dummy, we dont know when it happend but knew she chewed them, wd only knew something was wrong when she started crying and slowly doing the play bow trying to lie down, she needed an opp as she couldnt pass it. if he is still vometing tomorrow get him to the vets, if not watch his poos, any change get him to a vet.

Thank you all. He vomited a few times and then the most horrendous squelching started. However, this settled at 3am (my daughter was very brave and did hourly checks!). He is quite bright this morning and has performed both ways so fingers crossed. By the way the "wheel" turned out to be the earpiece of the playstation wireless headphones....... only small so hopefully just aggravation and not a blockage. Will let you know. Sue x

Eating rice - but only if I put some of his normal kibble in. Am guessing on the mend, but have just noticed that he cut four teeth yesterday so now wondering if this is linked. Anyone had similar issues?

When Benny was younger he swallowed a rock. (I believe I actually posted the story here a long time ago. Here it is.) He was acting fine, eating, playing, etc. But he kept throwing up. We took him to the vet and they sent him home saying it was probably just an upset stomach (he has a very sensitive stomach). The next day, the vomiting continued. An x-ray showed he had a stone stuck in his stomach, and this is what was causing him to vomit. They recommended surgery to remove it before it caused a blockage.

After that incident, we're always cautious when he starts throwing up often. If you haven't already, maybe you could consider a trip to the vet? It certainly can't hurt, and might just put your worries at ease. :) Until then, keep an eye on his poo to see if you find the piece. :)

So much better today - cannot believe how full of beans he is. The real Deefer is back in our house so hopefully just one of those things.... starting to wonder if I worry more about my puppy than my teenagers!
:eek:
