Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hi, I'm Dr. Peter. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now and will post back with your reply ASAP.
How big was the stick?
Did he chew it into smaller pieces?
Are you there?
Friend, the immediate concern is that the stick can become obstructed and perforate the gastrointestinal tract, if this happens the outcome is likely fatal. He is a 15 lbs dog eating a 10 inch stick, this is very likely to happen. I don't think he will be able to pass this in the stool if he did not break it down into smaller pieces. For this reason, I would recommend having him checked by ER veterinarian. Do Not make him vomit the stick can damage the esophagus on the way out making matters worst. I realize that this answer may not be entire to your liking, and I regret being the bearer of information that you really don’t want to hear. But it would be unfair to you and unprofessional of me were I to provide you with anything less than truthful and honest information. I hope you understand.
