Default Yikes! Here we go again

Well the New Year is off to a great start! I am thinking Lisi just this AM may have eaten one of her piggy tail scrunchies! It is no where to be found and it isn't one of the tiny ones either! Of course today is Sat. so the vet is only there an hour more! I am not sure if it would even show on x ray.
I & DH have searched the beds, the house, the balconies, and can't find it!
She will eat anything---even plastic.
Please pray for wisdom. I am not sure if I should wait or act.
If it were one of the tiny ones I would not be so concerned.
Stay tuned.

OK, I just spoke w/the younger vet & she said they do not usually do anything right away when this happens except to watch her. Having almost lost a dog like this once who had eaten a rubber bunger (given it was much, much larger & longer) I am a bit nervous about the wait.
Apparently they have to give her a special kind of exray as this would not show on the normal one which is very stressful---so they prefer to wait it out a bit.
She believes Lisi will "pass" it in her stool. I will be feeding her lots just to get some stool samples! If anyone knows of anything to feed her to help to bind it & bring it out with out blockage, please PM me ASAP.
Hummmm. 2013 here we come!

Never a boring moment with Lisi . I sure hope she pass it very soon. Bella will also eat ANYTHING and she keeps DH and I on our toes. I don't even know where she finds this stuff...we are minimalists, but somehow she finds things anyway!

Keep us posted!

I hope it turns up soon or that she passes it soon. I know the waiting and worrying is hard.

I hope she passes it real soon so you don't have to worry. I have to watch Pipper like a hawk because he will eat anything too.

There is never a dull moment around Lisi!!I use those scrunchies, too..it's hard not to worry, but I think the vet was right on..I would watch her.. I think she will pass it..string and large rubber bands are more worrisome..keep us posted, dear Sandi..

Oh Sandi, I hope Lisi has just hidden it from you and that, either way, she'll "produce" it soon.

I feel your pain! She sounds so much like Tessa that you'd swear they were related! Has she opened cupboard doors and taken the locking lid off of Rubbermaid yet????

Not yet Maggie---is that what I have to look forward to?
She is too small to open the cupboards, but she may learn to stand on the small ladder soon!
