Here`s another great article:

Don’t worry, I’m not asking for vet help— just needed to pass this along.

Today, my puppy (10 months) threw up four times within twelve hours. This was VERY unusual for her, so I called my vet and scheduled an expensive work in appointment. I almost didn’t because of the price, but decided my girl was worth it.

I was at the vet for 5 hours. Their best guess was my worst nightmare— bowel obstruction. I suspected a rope toy might be to blame, but cloth and rope doesn’t show up on radiology. Fortunately, the doctor spotted a tiny bit of string like imagery that confirmed an obstruction (along with the trapped gas). I was told I had three options:

$3k surgery right there and then. $1.2k hydrate and hospitalize $500 hydrate and send home.

After much crying and considering, I chose to hydrate and send home. (Her bloodwork and vitals were perfectly fine!) I was told what to do in the event things took a drastic turn, and then sent on my way.

Thus the waiting game began.

At 11 P.M., she assumed the position. I panicked, worrying she wouldn’t make any progress, but lo and behold! The world’s LARGEST SOCK made it’s way back into the world (with some very gentle help.)

It’s been a rough day for both of us, but I am so glad I went to the vet. Without their aggressive hydrating (iv and fluid hump), I think things would’ve gotten much worse.

Tl;dr: if you think something’s wrong, don’t hesitate! This case with my dog was thankfully resolved without much issue, but if I hadn’t taken initiative it might’ve had a much worse end.
