I agree with the others who said if he chewed it up some he should pass it ok. I would be a little concerned if he didn't chew it due to the sharp edges. As CW said monitor for vomiting or any other signs of illness. If so contact your veterinarian. It may be hepful to feed him some bread to give him something to pass along with it.
While most were right often they pass many things without complications we've seen some very serious complications by ingesting a lot of crazy objects.
My 30 pound beagle thinks he is a goat and eats everything. I'm always amazed when it is time to clean up his poop in the backyard. I would think your dog will be ok.
My buddy's dog once ate a whole package of Bic razor blades, vet said to feed him cotton balls mushed up in peanut butter so they would wrap up the sharp parts in his gut. He passed those fine, after hearing that story I get much less worried when dogs eat things they shouldn't.
Hey Chipper, we're gonna need updates. :rolleyes:
Our dogs did not even smell the trash at home or knock over the can inside for 6 years. The other day, there were chicken wing bones in the trash and they knocked it over and ate them while we were out for 20 minutes. I was worried as I've heard never to give a dog chicken bones. They have both been ok "potty" wise and haven't thrown up.
Our cats have eaten crazier things than our dogs. Christmas tinsel or bows for presents cannot enter our home or they will track them down and eat them all. (And then throw them up all over the house.)
I got a couple of female beagle pups a few years ago...while they were still in their wild and crazy stage they got onto the table and ate a whole package of dramamine. It was a couple of hours before we found the empty wrappers and all that happened was they were sleepy as heck for about a week solid. Most peaceful week we had in a couple years around the house :yes:
Solid stool this AM. Fed him a can of wet food to help excretion and he ate normally. Last night did some re-enactments of elimination scenarios with other guitar picks. This had some rough anatomy:object evaluations. I'm grabbing some gloves from the lab for doody duty.
I suggest preventing in the future, have him try finger picking or key boards.
He'll be fine! Dogs eat all kinds of stuff that most owners never know. Just monitor like CW noted.
Had a lab eat pantyhose once. Gave (forced him to drink) a mixture of water and peroxide. Think I gave him too much because his stomach was still traveling the highway from his ahole to his throat long after we retrieved the hose.
Still no passing of the pick?
Talked to my sister who is an ISU vet grad. As long as threre's no blood or discomfort your dog should have passed everything just fine. Just keep a close eye on him/her.
