answer please
Dog Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

Okay

I really dont think that the glove is still inside the GI tract. It would be impossible really to be passing normal stools and not have any clinical signs

So lets focus on the sock

How long ago did Lucy eat the sock?

Lets try and get that sock out

Do you have hydrogen peroxide?

If so please give 5 tablespoons by mouth now

Okay?
