Emergency - swallowed toothpick
OK - this is NOT Morgan...thank GOD! We've been through enough w/ her...
Our friend's dog Gus - a 1 1/2 year old lab - grabbed some Duck off of Jaime's (my friend) plate and ate it...it had 1 or 2 toothpicks in it.
The toothpicks are wood and it happened appx. 45 minutes ago.
She called the ER vet - but they always say to bring them in...and I don't think even if they did do x-rays that wood would show up on them...I got a toothpick stuck in my foot (long story) and the doc said it wouldn't show cuz it was wood.
I mentioned to her the cotton ball in creamer thing that I have read on here for glass...but told her I didn't know if it was OK for toothpicks.
I told her to watch for blood in urine and poo and to watch for lethargy and white gums??? But I don't know what else to tell her.
Any advice please?!?!
