My dog just ate half of a toothpick. This happened Saturday, June 30, 2012 at 12:10 AM central time zone.He is a beabull(half beagle/half english bulldog). He weighs about 30 pounds.What should I do or monitor for the next 24 hours?
Type of Animal: Beabull
Name of Dog: PLuto
I gave him some milk with bread already.
How is Pluto doing now?
Does he show any signs of being nauseous or gagging?
I would monitor for vomiting and abdominal pain. You can give him a large meal of rice and boiled chicken to allow the toothpick to continue to move through the GI tract.
Please keep me informed of his status, I am a ER vet that is on the rest of the night, I will wait your response.
He seems to be fine at the current moment. No gagging or nauseous sign. He is playing with his toy at the moment. I will give him some rice and chicken tomorrow.

Great! If possible to offer food earlier then that would be better. Please keep me informed of his status.
Please do not forget to rate my response to your question and let me know if there is anything else I can help you with!
Thanks for your suggestion! Pluto seems to be doing great. Yesterday, I fed him rice and chicken in the morning. He was delighted with a change in the menu! Thank you so much!
How is Pluto doing? Any vomiting, discomfort... is he eating well?
