My Dog Ate Plastic Wrap

If you follow us on Facebook, you know that last week “Prednisone Toby” decided he was going to reach into a garbage that is way taller than him, and grab plastic wrap that was used to wrap chicken.

Honestly, I don’t even know how he reached in there. All that I do know is that my dad put plastic wrap in the garbage and minutes later I see Toby running around the kitchen with plastic wrap hanging from his mouth.

After struggling to make him “drop it” and “let go”, I thought we were in the clear. Fast forward to two days later, and there’s plastic wrap coming out of his other end.

I went into full panic. All I could think of was, “I am doing everything in my power to keep the lymphoma controlled and Toby is going to die from a Saran Wrap blockage caused by pills that are helping keep him alive!”

Luckily, he seems to have past it all over the following days, with his poop finally going back to normal today.

My poor aunt. We have been doing multiple daily “poop updates” to keep a check on how Toby was doing.

Of course, I also checked in with the vet after I found the plastic wrap in his poop, because I was sure a $500 bill of x-rays and other tests ¬†were in my future. However, because it was already a few days, he was active, eating normally and since plastic wrap won’t show up on an x-ray, they told me to just watch him closely.

Thank goodness, he seems to be fine. Me, on the other hand, might have a bunch of new grey hairs!
