EMERGENCY! My dog swallowed a whole popcicle stick!!!

I have called the vet, and the vet said he may have to have surgery, and to watch for vomit blood and lethargy. Any one else outhtere have any advise? Please help asap.

I strongly suggest a vet trip right away.

If your vet has said the dog may need surgery, I would listen! You do NOT want your dog to try passing a whole popsicle stick. Make sure your vet is informed about sedation for Bulldogs. No ACE! Tell your vet that should surgery become necessary today. Ace Promazine is a NONO in the Bulldog. Ask your vet to only use Isoflurane or Sevoflurane for sedation.

my archie had done the same

my archie had done the same thing also...and although i was in a state of

panic and trying to find a vet at the time that was open...he ended up doing

his business and it came right out-yup all in one piece-intact!!!

but a trip to the vet wouldn't be a bad idea!
