Izzy off to the Vet today. Possible blockage.

Izzy was not eating the past couple of days and just laying around so I took her into the Vet. She is an almost five year old dog and I would have sworn that she never played with toys. My big dogs tear up toys playing tug-a-war so there are pieces lying around.


The did an ultrasound and an xray and sure enough she had a blockage. When they opened her up she had a small ball of something in her intestine and in her stomach she had a small arm of a toy. They had to remove a section of her intestine and also open up her stomach. She came through the operation alright but now we have to worry about infection. She is staying at the Vet hospital till Monday morning so they can monitor her.


First thing tomorrow morning I am going out in the yard now that the snow has finally gone and pick up every toy they can chew up. Certainly do not want to have to go through this again. Haven't see the bill yet but just the examination was $111.00 plus, plus, plus. Would do it again to save her as she would have died otherwise.

Well, Izzy is home and I hope over the worst. The bill was actually not as much as I thought as she did stay both Saturday and Sunday night. I am lucky they give a Senior Discount which reduced the bill by $250.00 but still $1770.00. She is my rescue Poodle but I would do it again, just hope I do not have to. She had such a bad start in life, being bought for breeding and then discarded when they could not get her bred. Raised for two years in a box stall, never outside, saw nobody but whoever fed her. It has taken me almost a year to see her tail wagging and happy with me. Still terrified of strangers but will keep working on that. They had the nerve to ask for her back as they had someone who would breed her artificially. I had put an end to that as I had her spayed.

Blockages from dogs eating random stuff----so scary!!!

Wow. I am so glad to hear that your Izzy is home with you again! How is she doing today? I bet she is super glad to be home with you as her comfort instead of being stuck at the vet's.

Blockages are soooooo scary. It is so good that you guys figured it all out in time. You must have been freaking out. I know I would have if it was one of my dogs. I do worry about blockages. When Puma pup was younger I made sure she was nearly always in my sight or in her safe crate so she would not have access to chomping on dangerous stuff. She is much better now that she is 1 years old, but every so often I find her munching on something that is not safe. Yikes! You just never know when they find something, even if you are ultra careful, right?

Sounds like izzy had a crappy beginning in her life---thank heavens you guys found each other so that the rest of her life can be wonderful!

Sending you and Miss Izzy all good healing wishes!!!!

Please keep us updated on her recovery.

And thanks for sharing this with us--- it is such a good reminder to others to be aware of dogs getting dangerous life threatening blockages from eating random non edible stuff!

Took Izzy into the Vet today to get the Fentanyl patch off her back leg. She is still on antibiotics for another week plus something to give her an hour before she eats to help coat her stomach. She had her first poop today so that has started working which is good and is eating everything I give her. Right now her and Bonnie (her best buddy) are sleeping on my bed together. I have a stool at the end of the bed so my little dogs can get up so she doesn't have to jump up and down at all.
