Hi MissyWhenever your dog gets right into something she souldn"t havedo this. It"s gonna sound nuts i know...(2 vets told me this) I thought it to be crazy too. Give your dog 1-2 tablespoons/depending on her size of Vaseline (yup you read right) put it between toast bread. Reportedly it"s just like mineral oil...but won"t reason the runs. Their body doesn"t digest the Vaseline so on it"s method out it brings everything with it.

It"s smaller sized than a silver dollar and also is supposedly worth 2$
If there is any type of vomitus, go for an x-ray. She must pass it despite (my dog have consumed things that make me cave my head in shame), but if she becomes lethargic or starts vomiting, it has to be gotten rid of surgically.Good luck.

If her dog ever swallows something thats for sure to bring ago up again, girlfriend can provide her 5-10mls the hydrogen peroxide orally. This will certainly make she vomit her stomach content. This should never be done with bones or anything sharp that could tear on the means back up. It will cause significant problems.
Thanks for all the responses. Well, she seemed completely fine every night and also so we fed she a tiny extra to help it the end and very first thing this morning she passed it. Yep, we had bright yellow poop this morning. It"s really sad as soon as you can acquire that excited around your dogs poop yet I was just so happy that she was okay. She"s consumed other things yet I was worried that the sponge can really pains her, ns guess it wasn"t big enough.
