Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
HI this is DRB and I would be happy to help you with this. So this does sound like gastritis to me as well......the good news is that the vomiting has stopped and I would bet that whatever is causing the gastritis has now reached her lower GI tract. And yes the dental chew could definitively have caused all of this. With more fluids and antibiotics she should be fine. If they felt she was actually obstructed they would take her to surgery. She could just be moving parts of that chew through her intestinal tract and it sounds as if things might be in her colon now, so that is good. Given a little more time and therapy, it sounds like she will get through this without surgery and that is definitively preferable. I hoped that I have helped you but please let me know if you have additional questions. Sincerely, DRB

I think the likelihood that it will pass is pretty high based on the history you have outlined. I have seen dogs go through this so many times and it can sometimes take weeks for this to resolve. She likely is moving things through but is occasionally having partial obstruction. And then it will go past another loop of bowel.They should be re-radiographing her just to make sure things do look clear. At any point if they think she has an obstruction that will not pass then they should make the decision to take her to surgery. Is she at the specialist hospital now?
If she is not at the specialist hospital, you may want to have her transferred to there because if she needs surgery this will be her best option for recovery. And like I said they should be taking more xrays of her so they can watch for change and or development of obstruction. Please let me know if you need additional help. Sincerely, DRB
