Beware of Marbles!

Yes, he'll eat anything. . .Brody got onto the patio table , knocked over a vase with marbles in the base, and found the one that we missed on the porch floor. He started vomiting the next day, couldn't keep anything down, so off the the emergency vet clinic at 9PM (2 hours from home). The x-rays showed the marble in his stomach, so off to surgery to remove it. $2200 and 2 weeks later, he's happy and active as ever, but has been renamed "Frankenpuppy"!
Beware of the small objects around the house!

That's terrifying. I always had that problem with Milo. Thank goodness, so far, Bailey seems more interested in food and toys. We'll see.

So glad you baby is all better.

That's is scary. It is great that Brody has recovered well from the surgery.

Best, Poornima

I'm glad Brody is all better now. That is scary. And expensive!

I thought marbles would be vomited up or passed. Yikes.

Thanks for the kind words. . .we felt so guilty seeing his poor little tummy incision. The vet said he is a little too small (even at 14.4 lbs) to either vomit it back or pass it through the sphincter into the bowel - in fact it could have been much worse if it had caused a bowel obstruction. I'm really paranoid now, but the little stinker tries to eat EVERYTHING!

Brody's Mom, that's really terrible! I'm glad he's feeling much better now that he's emptied your vase AND pockets Pablo loves to put EVERYTHING in his mouth as well, but he rarely swallows it, even if it's tiny as can be, he just seems to play with it. BTW, Lisa, that's how I found 10 of his teeth, cause he carried them around, sucking on them like candy. Obviously he's never allowed to do that but he sometimes hides, stinker.

Youch . . . $2200!! That hurts as much as the marble probably did! I always worry when I am trying to dig something out of Jackson's mouth that he will swallow it by mistake. Sorry everyone had to go through that, but glad Brody is all better.

Oh my goodness, poor Brody!! That is so scary! There are so many little things like that under all our couches, and refrigerators, and playrooms - I cannot believe that he actuall ATE it!!!! I am so glad that he is ok now. You need to send him out to get a job to pay that vet bill!! Hmmm maybe he can go on a lecture tour to teach others about the "dangers" of marbles
