Default Stupid Mommy moment.... I think Grace swallowed...

a water bottle cap.... chewed.

Ugh!

She's going to be the death of me, I tell you!

I was taking a bath, put Grace in her little dog bed in the bathroom, but kept the door open so she could get water (bath is attached to my room).

I dropped a water bottle cap (small one - 1 inch diameter and about 1/4 inch tall).... 100% positive I dropped it, saw it roll to about the middle of the floor.

Grace was sleeping. I was washing my hair, and when I looked back over the cap was gone... so was Grace.

I called her, no Grace. Rinsed the soap out, while getting out (2 minutes?) and she came back in licking her lips! I picked her up, she hadn't been drinking water, and I didn't leave any food out for her.

Searched everywhere for this little cap and it is no where. No where.

I've shaken blankets, looked on the table, on shelves (maybe she tossed it up playing), shaken all the clothes in my laundry basket... no where.

She won't eat food I give her but she will eat plastic.
It's like Lisi and the hair tie de ja vu

What do I do here?

Probably going to call the vet in the AM.... but how serious is this?

Seriously this girl is going to give me grey hair!

Hopefully she just hid it in a really hard to find place...I'd think if she swallowed it, she'd be choking, but don't take chances...get her checked, it might not come out as easily as it went in..... Keep us posted... well if she's eating plastic, she's starting to feel better... Lil Bugger!

I'm still looking... But my room isn't that big, and she has one of those looks on her face... like she knows she did something naughty.



Well, we might be doing xrays tomorrow! Yippee!

Stinker.

She ate it. I know she ate it. I can't find it anywhere.She isn't a good hider. She hides things in her beds... I've looked... No where. She had it a total of about 4 minutes... I don't know when she grabbed it. Stinker is so quiet with her feet bandaged

Oh this sucks.

There's nothing I can give her is there?

Just get her to eat and move around so it will pass. Is it a tiny cap?

It could be along the wall in a corner, near the base of a toilet or vanity base board...hard to say... Maybe go along with a sweeper, you never know, you might find it... I've done that before,I had one of my fluffs get into a small baggie I had a micro SD card about the size of a pinky nail, for a phone, looked and looked, couldnt' find it, turned up in a dark corner under the ledge of my kitchen cabinet...swore I looked but there it was...

Yeah... it's not in there.

I will look again in the morning.

It's the cap on a 16 oz water bottle... It's my fault. She is bored, I should have grabbed it when it fell. Sigh.

Will call the vet first thing in the morning. We see them Thursday. Will see what they say tomorrow morning. Pretty sure she ate it.... they may say to wait until she shows signs?

Sigh.

Thanks Nickee...

Grace has sharp teeth ... poodle teeth. She chews fast when she wants to. I know she knew she shouldn't have it... so she probably ran off and quickly chewed it... they are really thin (darn eco-friendly caps).... so wouldn't take much for her to chew it enough.

I think her lip licking was the last swallow. I'm still looking! Gah. Will probably be up all night tearing my room apart looking.

I'm really praying for her to throw it up but I doubt that would happen.

Oh my...I didn't think our smal fluffies can actually chow down on a 16oz bottle cap! It is always a suprise and new thing to learn here. I'll be keeping an eye out for small object lying around in case Biscuit too has the urges.

Tori, I'm sure you're worry sick here and I hope that the xray will come back negative. Or if she did swallow the botle caps, maybe the Vet has some idea on how to get it out of her system safely. Not to be the idiot for asking this but is there any type of laxitive for dogs that could help Grace to naturally get it out of her system?
