Re: x-rays, how can gas show, which is invisible, but not show fabric? Just asking b/c this is the third time I have read this? How would it obscure a foreign substance? or how do they determine it's gas and not a foreign object like fluff from a toy?

Can you ask your vet today please, enquiring minds want to know

p.s. I hope he has had a turnaround and doesn't need surgery. Is he pooping at all?

I have no idea. Before the ultrasound they thought they may have seen something. That's why they did the ultrasound, which they said they couldn't see anything. He hasn't pooped in three days. The vet last night said that's why he was hunched over. Sure enough as soon as I take him outside he does it. I'm waiting for the vet to open in a few minutes to take him back.

that is true fabrics do not show up, but small changes on both sides of the obstruction do, but not right away. in a couple days your pup should be as good as new after the surgery.

I'm guessing its based on the density of the object but I have no idea. I will try my best to remember to ask today.

One more thing, just in case he has to have surgery, tell the vet to use an anesthetic that is NOT in the MDR-1 no or caution list. Just in case. MDR-1 dogs can have seizures and, well that's enough...precautionary.

When your dog was hunched last night, was he trying to poop? Walking funny, like he was trying to get something out and/or signs of trying to excrete? Wondering how the vet determined that without being there.

Did he rule out pancreas or gallbladder obstruction w/blood work? Did he consider it as a possibility? Is this able to be seen when your pup is in surgery?

Just thinking something you should be asking w/vet today

Sorry about all the questions

edit: Just saw the update while I was typing this! He Pooped! Perhaps he doesn't need surgery? how was the poop, solid?
