    DefaultHELP - can a leather leash cause a blockage??

    I came home from work and found a small piece of Buddy's leather leash. The clasp, about 4" of leather, and another 2" that I pulled out of his mouth. The leash had been on the dining room table. :-[ I have searched the living room, kitchen, and dining area and there is no more, nothing. That means he ate over five feet of leather today. He's pooped twice since I got home, both a little soft - but he does that when it's warm.

    We are still behind because of the almost $3,000 we paid for Shadow's surgeries and the two episodes of shock, on top of the $2,800 we had to pay the IRS in April. :-\ We just can't afford to pay for another surgery if he has a blockage from this.

    Oh no Buddy! I don't have any experience with leather, hopefully someone else does. I hope he's ok.

    how long ago were you out, and for how long? I don't know what the time limit is for inducing vomitting, but...

    Completely normal - jumping around, wanting to play, wanting to eat - typical Buddy! :-\

    I'm thinking you'll find the rest of that leash in bits and pieces around the house. Whatever part of it he ate, well, think of it as a refined rawhide.

    Hope there's no ill effect, Jackie. Sounds like "so far, so good".

    If you are concerned Jackie, call your vet.

    Well, I made Buddy throw up and out came lots and lots of little pieces of leather - none more than 1" long, most about 1/2" long. Looks like he did a rather surgical job of biting off and swallowing nice, small pieces! He still wants to play, and I gave him a handful of kibble when he was throwing up just bile. He scarfed that down, so he's feeling fine. Sheesh, these Labs! :-\

    Glad to hear that he chews his food. It's never fun to make them throw up but at least it will give you piece of mine. It's usually Reggie that I have to make throw up. He's my chewer.
