    Sad I'm Worried

    Advertisements
    Stormy swollowed a whole corndog stick Cameron was eating and dropped the corn dog... Stormy scooped it up and swollowed the whole damn thing without even chewing it before we could even get across the room to grab her. We called the e-vet and were instructed to watch her, what to look for, when to take her etc... but I am so worried because we really, REALLY can't afford an emergency right now I just really hope she passes it because I have no idea how we'll pay for a surgery.

    Have any of you delt with this?

    Not a stick, but we once had to pay for a rawhide chew to be surgically removed from our dog's stomach. The surgery actually wasn't that expensive, if you have to go that route, see your normal vet, and not an emergency clinic, since they usually charge less. Good luck. Having a dog that scarfs stuff isn't any fun.

    Ok here is a great story. My Golden was 5 months old. I ran a home daycare. Well the dog took a corndog off a kids plate and I swear inhaled it as fast as anything. I freaked too. TOok him to the vet he said lets see if it passes. Well the next day.....came out whole with a poop wrapped around it!!!! It was the funniest thing I've ever seen.

    It really was gross. He did bleed a little before but they said he may. But it came out completely whole. And at 5 months old he is still pretty small. I swear retrievers are famous for the things they eat.

    Stormy is 7 1/2 months and weighs around 60 lbs I am hoping her size will help her more.

    I hope everything comes out ok... If necessary though, you may want to think about care credit. It is easy to be approved and the interest is low. http://carecredit.com/ Most vets take it...

    Also, try to go during "normal" hours if you think you need to see your vet. By doing so, you avoid an emergency fee.

    I'm sorry... I've been in that place where you just can't afford an emergency and of course that is when it happens. Hang in there.

    If dogs can digest bones you'd think a corndog stick wouldn't stand a chance in there! Scary to hear it could come out whole, I honestly would never have thought that was possible

    I hope everything comes out and she is ok!
