Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hi this is Dr. Hill. Please give me a moment to type my full response. Thank you.
So, I need to ask a few questions first. When did Bruno eat the underwear? Has he been eating his dog food? Is he on any medications? Have you given him anything else, besides the bacon?
With that additional information, I would recommend that you take him to a local emergency clinic. If he has not eaten hardly anything for three days and is acting funny, then he likely still has some underwear in there. The emergency clinic can at a minimum put him on iv fluids to help his gastrointestinal tract keep moving things along in the bowel. Because he has defecated some underwear out, we know the intestinal tract is moving, but it will slow and make it more likely for him to become obstructed because he is not eating and pushing things along. I would avoid giving him any high fat foods, because we don't want him to develop pancreatitis on top of the underwear issue. Do you have a local emergency clinic you can take him to?
your welcome. I was an emergency veterinarian for over 15 years and have seen a lot of ingested underwear. The iv fluids serve two purposes: rehydration and keeping the intestines motile. Hopefully, he will be able to pass any additional underwear and not require surgery. Please post any additional questions. If you are satisfied with my response, then please take time to rate my answer. You can continue posting on this thread for a couple of days, even after rating. Take care and I would love an update if you don't mind.
