Question ate a couple of chunks out of her new blanket?

Just got a new blanket for yer crate and today i found it on the floor with a hole ripped out it in the middle and on the side, its a poly ester blanket from walmart. One o those small throws.

Well shes going to be 3 soon. Shes had lots of blankets like this she hasnt done something like this to one of them. I think she ate it i can't find the other pieces around?

She seems fine tho full of energy and ate her food and everything ok.

Do you think i shouldn't worry about it? I took her blanket away now she just has a matt in her crate. Shes never locked in her crate but she uses it as a bed.

keep checking her poop, if she ate the "chunks" of blanket they will show up in her poop. i would keep checking as i spent a fortune on surgery for kyra, she ate something and caused a blockage.

she also has her own dog door she can take stuff outside im looking and trying to find it but shes drinking normal and ate like a pig today so i am watching close, she does things like this sometimes (to other stuff not bedding) like she really attacked and chewed up some halloween monsters. Just once in a blue moon she will do stuff like this.

when kyra ate something out of the cloths hamper, not sure how much time went by, there was very little poop and lots of vomiting. so far sounds like she is ok.

i never found any blanket in her stool but i never noticed any strangness in the way she acted she has been totally fine? So wierd. What a beast she can be.

Do you think maybe later when it gets colder i should try giving her a blanket back? im sure shes done this in the past shes tried to ruin everything at some point? I wont put it back yet though.

Everytime I give Rusty a blanket to lay on or under, he destroys it. Thankfully, he doesn't eat it. He just rips it up. I'm glad it sounds like your dog is ok. Maybe she ripped a chunk out and hid it somewhere...

If she did swallow some pieces, you can give a tube of laxatone (the stuff you give cats for hairballs) and it will help her pass it. Hopefully there won't be an issue with blockage. If she stops pooping or starts to vomit, I would call the vet. We went through this with Suki about 2 months ago.

Raina ate the (small) foot off of one of her toys. I was so worried. I kept watching her closely and watching her poop. Then after 2 days it came out with the poop. She never got diarrehea or was off her feed during that time and pooped normally as well but it took two days for it to work it's way out. I watch her more closely now when she is hanging out with a stuffed pet in case she gets the urge to chew on it.
