    DefaultWell CRAP

    I am home from work with Mr. Bubbles, and he clearly isnt feeling too well. He had a nice dinner, with some pretty good enthusiasm....i took him out to poop (since I am now on total poop patrol), and he does his business....and this big THING is hanging out.....along with the poop and the expected ho-ho wrappers, there is what looks like alot of string.......I did not pull on it to get it out, (as I have heard with string or yarn that that can be dangerous), and it was able to get out on its own.

    I don't THINK its worms - I know what roundworms look like, it doesnt look segmented like a tapeworm would, and whip worms are smaller - this looks like....STRING.

    Do I keep it to take to vet tomorrow to have her look at???

    Obviously I will be watching him very closely - if he has eaten string of some sort, we might not be out of the woods yet.

    Does he have rope toys he likes to shred?? Henery sometimes gets danglers when he destroys his rope toys....

    Hope your boy is feeling better!

    I think I would observe him more closely and at the first sign of anything unusual I would get to the vet. I would keep the string until this passes (sorry couldn't resist the pun) so if you do have to take him in you'll have a sample of what might be causing the problem..

    Yep thats what I will do - watch him - I did bag it up just in case.....I think I figured out where it came from though - at first I was thinking it was some cotton yarn I had, and perhaps the digestive juice had bleached it....but then I remembered, we had one of those little butterball turkey breasts on Tuesday....the outer wrapper is plastic string and then the inside is cotton string.....
