My dogs used to eat socks to and they were fine I actually thought socks could get stuck in their intestines though so I didn't know, But the last time my dogs have ate a sock was a year ago and they have been fine since. I would take her to the vet ASAP.. Nails tear up there intestines

Socks, can, but do not always, cause a blockage. Depends, on how much of the sock is eaten, what the sock is made of, and the dogs size and digestive system, and a certain amount of luck, too.

Hippophile,

Thank you for coming back with an update. I'm so glad your dog seems to be doing well.

I have important question for you: What is her poop like? Has it changed in color or consistency? If her poop has turned black, you still need to get her to the vet as this can indicate that she is bleeding internally.

Since we know that your dog will eat anything, you'll need to be especially careful about what is lying around the floor.

Take care and best wishes to you both!

I'm pretty sure it's still brown-colored. When she was young, she had weird problems with her poop. It varied in color, consistency, and had blood/mucous in it often. We took her to the vet once or twice for that, and our vet called it a parasite of some sort, or bacteria. I don't remember. But that was treated and it disappeared.

We try to be careful, but I have a family of 9 with three young boys who are all quite sloppy, so it's not always easy. To be frank, they don't care, but then one is a baby. Most of the time, I can get whatever she was eating away from her.

I think she's fine

I have 2 kids (they're 11!) and a husband and it's already a nightmare to make sure they don't leave things in reach... Thankfully the dogs stopped eating everything they could find months ago. There's so much STUFF everywhere, even the dogs are overwhelmed.

I hope I am way, way off base and that Hippophile will update us, but she certainly doesn't owe us anything. Hopefully the vet was able to call the cab/ambulance/Uber/Lyft if Hippophile couldn't but I don't have any kids so I have no idea if that would even be legal.


I would thing either her sister of father would have taken the dog to the vet as soon as either one found out about this.
