Off her food
 
Hey so my dog destroyed her bed on friday and since then has been off her food. I have had her do this once before and knew what signs to look out for because last time it resulted in major surgery so i took her to er vet last night. They couldnt feel anything and said the only thing was she was a bit dehydrated.

They recommended watching her overnight and taking her back to my regular vet within a day if she doesnt eat again. She ate a tiny bit this morning and a tiny bit this evening but seems disinterested.

Ive decided if she refuses to eat tomorrow morning im booking her into the vet but i was wondering if anyone has any ideas what it could be if its not a blockage.

She is still goin toilet and her stools are a bit of diarrhea with a small stall. She is still excited when i bring the balls out to play with and stirs her brother up.

any remedys or ideas?

offered her ham and chicken and wasnt really interested

It sounds like you know more about blockages than I do. I know they can be expensive and very dangerous, but have never had a dog go though surgery.

I probably would not give the dog a bed it can chew up, she sounds like it isn't safe for her, and I would crate/kennel her safely (no toys) when I couldn't supervise.

One of the puppies I sold, was eating his toys and got blocked, and they had surgery done on him. I keep toys away from his sister too, as she will tear them up with a vengence, and I expect she would eat them as well. Doesn't eat food, but will eat dog toys.

Anyhow, keep us posted, and let us know what the regular vet says.

That is terrible! I have not given my puppy a bed till 2 days ago. He is 5 months old. The first night, he slept fine. Second night, at 5AM he started to tear up his bed. Thankfully I woke up and saw it. So, out it went....comfort vs. safety, safety always wins. It sucks, because we want them to be comfortable, but then they go and eat the bed.

Good luck and let us know how it turns out.
