So apparently sometime yesterday Sydney ate a set of headphones, cord and all.  Just found the ear-bud portion in her most recent... leavings, and found a tiny piece of cord in the bedroom.  So she ate the whole fucking thing.  She has an appointment at 4 to get X-rays to make sure she doesn't need the cord isn't tangled in her intestine, else she might need surgery which we cannot fucking afford right now.

I hope to God she doesn't need surgery.   There are no words for how hard I hope she doesn't need surgery. 

Dammit, Sydney. 

EDIT:  Some of the cord had worked its way into the intestine, but the doc is confident she'll pass those bits.  As for what was left, a majority of it was still in the stomach, so they induced vomiting, which brought up a cluster of cord, the plug, several acorns, and a piece of what might have been either paper or fabric -- we aren't sure which.

People think I'm kidding when I say Syd will eat anything not nailed down.

She's okay, though -- thanks to everyone for their finger-crossing and good-thoughts.  <3

...D8 I hope everything's fine! (Or as fine as she can get after eating headphones)

She has fifty-bazillion bones to chew on, and she picks headphones.

We were able to catch it while it was mostly still in her tummy, so the vet induced vomiting and... well, at least she won't need surgery. :)

She will be okay. The vet induced vomiting and that brought... well, all MANNER of interesting things up. Some things I hadn't even known she'd eaten. I was reminded of those shark specials where they talk about the stuff people find after a shark's stomach is cut open.

I would have been not at all surprised to find an old license plate in her gut, I swear...

"She didn't eat the CAR, did she??"

Hee.... glad to hear that she'll be OK! Furbabies definitely know how to cause some stomach-wrenching moments, don't they? And in this case, I guess it was literal. ^^

She's a power-chewer, so the hope is that if she did eat the cord, she chewed it up really well.

Ohgodihopeshechewed. :(

Dr. Young's first words upon seeing Syd:

"Are you TRYING to drive your mama crazy?"

Sometimes I suspect she IS.

*clings* I hope to God that she doesn't need surgery either. Lil'Bit did this to us last year with a sewing needle, and I was in hysterics nearly. Oh, I hope she doesn't need it either.

Two x-rays and one dose of magical barf-o-rama injection and, yes, everything is going to be okay.

My nerves are shot, but other than that... ;)

The vet took a couple of x-rays, and found that most of everything was still in her stomach, so he induced vomiting. There are small bits of things down in her intestines, but he's confident she'll pass those no problem. So... it looks like everything's gonna be okay! (Aside from the fact that Sydney is going to be pooping out bits of wire for the next couple days....)

I'm at the clinic right now. She's in getting x-rayed, so we'll know something before much longer.

And I say again: Dammit, Sydney!

(She has also finally reached the point where she weighs less than 50 lbs which would be exciting news under ordinary circumstances...)

Oh, dear. Poor, voracious doggie...I hope all can be safely eliminated without the need for surgery. ::hugs::

Most of the cord, along with the plug, was in her stomach still, so the vet took her back and gave her a shot of something I cannot even begin to pronounce or spell, but that certainly did the job of... eliminating the problem, so to speak. :)

Most of it hadn't gone into her intestines yet, so the vet induced vomiting and brought up a majority of what she'd eaten. There are still some smaller bits working through, but he's confident she'll pass them over the next few days.

*facepalm* They took a zipper and some rocks out of my mom's dog. And my kitten gave us a pin-swallowing scare, promptly followed by eating aluminum foil. So yeah, I feel ya. ^^;;

Glad Sydney is OK!

WHY DO THEY EAT SUCH WEIRD STUFF? Do not even tell me that zippers, rocks, pins, aluminum foil, and ear-buds taste good.

...Then again, Sydney loves to eat cat poop, so I guess there's no accounting for taste.

My sister's kitty just purloined her favorite fluffy pink headphones off the table and devoured most of the cover. Sis is quite srsly pissed. :o

Glad the pupper didn't go and do something irreversibly stupid. Sounds like she's trying her best. X'''D

I am so relieved for you. Dogs are family and being put into that position must have been terrible. I'm glad she's going to be all right. :)

So glad she's recovering! Pets drive you nuts. Clarissa hasn't escaped for a couple of weeks, so she's probably due one...
