My 50# Australian Shepherd ate the meat absobent pad. He’s almost 2 years old. Of course it happens on a fucking Sunday & all vets are closed except for emergency vets. Has this happened to anyone else’s dog before?

Hydrogen peroxide to induce vomitting. Could cause an obstruction depending on how big it was

Unfortunately, yes. My dog (a collie) is a master at getting into the garbage – he’s like Houdini with garbage bins- and more than once he’s consumed that part of the meat packaging.
I just watched until he passed it and monitored for anything that indicated he had an obstruction (even when he did pass it, I watched him closely in case there was more than one piece) I don’t know that the vet will be able to do anything unless he can’t pass it.
Even once he did pass it, his stool indicated he had gastro upset for a bit afterwards.
Hopefully your pup passes it soon and doesn’t feel too sick in the meantime.

My german shepherd ate one, pooped it out, no problems. I guess it depends if it was one with little crystals in it or just cotton wadding. the cotton/plastic one should be ok, if it had crystals i would find an emergency/24hr vet

Phone the emergency vet now. They will tell you what to do or what to watch out for.

I’m sure your puppers will be alright! I’d keep a close eye on him for the night and evaluate tomorrow whether a trip to the vet is necessary. Our dog (golden retriever) has consumed some pretty whacky things and they’ve always come out one way or the other. Our vet told us vomiting is normal, but watch for 2 things. If it becomes darker in colour or if it becomes projectile. Both of those things mean the item is likely causing an obstruction. Also watch for the typical stuff; if he’s eating, drinking, and going to the bathroom as usual it’s less cause for concern. Hope your doggo is feeling better soon!

I have almost no doubt your dog will be just fine!! Back when I are meat, my dogs would snag those at any opportunity. I have never had a dog have a problem. I have had many many dogs over the years eat some crazy things, the most they ever suffered was a tummy ache for a few days. They usually will throw thing like that up if it is a problem. I honestly wouldn’t worry.

Yes. 60lb lab cross. Took her in for x rays and vet couldnt see it but she was somewhat off food and wanted to eat allll the grass. Took about a week and she puked it up. Was so stressful. Vet said to keep her eating and drinking and if she stopped that to bring her in. I guess the food is to help it move along and hopegully get pooped out?
