Reggie's latest "swallowing" drama
He got the plastic cap that goes on a disposable razor yesterday. I think he got it out of the bathroom off the floor. I had been cleaning and had already vacuumed the tile in that bathroom so I had let him come down the hall with me thinking it was "safe". Well next thing I know he is crunching on something and after I chased him down I retrieve part of the plastic cap that goes on a razor. He had swallowed the other part. So I called my vet and they told me to give him 2cc of Peroxide in a syringe down his throat to make him swallow it and wait a few minutes to see if he throws up and if not to give him a couple cc's more at intervals until he does but not to exceed 1/4 cup total. It is supposed to work pretty quickly. I waited 5 mins or so after the first 2ccs and then gave him 3cc more. I had gated him up in the kitchen so he would be on tile. After the 2nd dose he threw up. It was gross but he seemed fine after that.
Lord help me with this dog! He eats everything!

oh no... he's in the prime of teething! My dogs ate holes in my walls and chewed up everything in sight until they were at least a year, then it tapered off. Its nearly impossible to keep EVERY little thing away from them. Just keep a close eye... you did good. It will be over soon, couple more months!
