Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello, I'm Dr. Kara. I have over 20 years of experience as a veterinarian and I'd like to help. Please give me a moment to review your concerns.
I am sorry to hear that your pup swallowed a fish hook two nights ago, has vomited twice, once with fishing line coming up and her reswallowing it, and has had bloody stools.
All of her symptoms point to the hook being lodged somewhere. It is not likely to get free, and my concern is that if the hook perforates her gastrointestinal tract it could lead to peritonitis, or infection in her chest, depending upon where it lodges and perforates.
This is beyond home care, she needs an emergency clinic visit and probably surgery.
Best of luck with your little one.
That is very fortunate. Please watch her for signs of fever, difficulty swallowing or lack of appetite and have seen should those occur.
