HElP, Sick Puppy and I cant reach my vet

Max is 5 1/2 months old and late last night he seemed a little mopey, nothing too serious but a change and I wrote it off as him being tired. We had a busy day yesterday.

This morning he was still not quite himself, sluggish, tired, i wasnt sure but he went back to bed after our morning bathroom break which is not unusual.

He had not been sleeping long when I heard that familar sound, he was going to vomit.

I rushed to him and managed to get him off the bed and he gagged a few times and swallowed hard and nothing came up.

U took him out but he seemed anxious to go back in. We came in and he lay back down and an hour or so later i see him sit up and start to vomit, i rushed to his side and it seemed he was struggling and then with a big gag out came a mass of garbage. Meaning wood chips, i knew he had been chewing sticks but wasnt aware he ate them, some fabric that was a part of one of his toys, black tape, and a few other items. It smelled horrendous, and what really shocked me was how solid it was. Approximately 5 inches long and 1 1/2 inch in diameter and a solid chunk of all these items. Im concerned he has more or a blockage. Any advice til my vet returns my call?

Just seeing this post 8 hours later. Hopefully by now your vet got back to you. I would imagine the vet will want to do x-rays to see if there is another blockage. Fingers crossed the mess he vomited up was all that was causing the problem.
Any update on Max?

Joe

it's monday so i'm hoping you got him to the vet this morning.
splinters from the wood can be dangerous. even the smallest one can puncture the intestines and cause major infection. possibly septicemia.
make sure you clear out your yard of junk and prevent him from eating all that crap. a little pepto may help coat the digestive tract and sooth any inflammation.

Thank you for your input. Fortunately i had just hit the post button and vet called.

Vet was out on house call so he stopped in to check on Max . (Have an awesome vet) Thank you Dr. Harland.!

Max is fine. He is back to his feisty self. Already have been picking up things he may eat which is everything it would seem. It is somewhat difficult since our space is 25 acres of wooded lot and pasture but the immediate area is stick free and we keep a closer eye when out to play and exercise.

Thanks again

25 acres?! i can just imagine trying to pick up all that wood. lol
it would be a shame to confine him with all that room to run around and explore. hopefully he kicks that bad habit. if he's a chewer, maybe get him some tough toys. a tire?

I fostered a dog once that was a hybrid wolf, he picked up all the sticks on my property and piled them in a bon fire, he saw us do it and started helping that guy was huge so he lifted big logs as well, but maybe you can train him to be constructive with the wood, bit of a long shot tho I guess haha

No actually thats how i an afraid this stick fascination began was. Since I brought him home we have always picked up sticks and piled for bon fire. Im not sure he would do it alone tho.

I could nevet confine him, his life has always been a new adventure everyday, rather its harrassing the wildlife, eating things that arent food or playing hide and seek with me. He keeps me active
