Ugh... here we go again! Nanook...

Ok, sorry guys. It must seem that I'm the worlds worst "mommy". My husband was trying to fix a leak under the sink. He pulled the garbage can out and I had just cut a cantaloupe in half, then quarted it. There were 4 sections of rhind in the garbage. He grabbed one and basically swallowed it before I could take it from him. So a possible blockage aside, does anyone know if it is harmful?

Wouldn't he just digest that? You never know, if it doesn't sit well in his tummy, he may try to vomit it back up again anyway. Hope it doesn't cause any trouble, you've had more than your share already.

Thank you for the response Goldfields. I'm hoping he will. Was more worried whther or not it was toxic. I called the animal hospital. They said it isn't toxic but there is a good possibility he will develop a blockage, so we need to monitor him for the next 48 hours. I'm praying he doesn't! I just can't leave him alone for even a minute.... He lives up to his nickname, Nookie Monster!

Oh! Thank you Free
Was so worried about the rhind, and the fact that he almost swallowed it whole (maybe got 2 bites out of it first). I don't mind how long he takes to pass it, as long as it passes!!

If should pass however do monitor.

My old rottie Ben (RIP sweet boy) consumed pins...about 50 of them. They passed AMAZINGLY with all accounted for without injury. Don't ask how that happened but the funny thing was sifting through the poop to count. My brother in law's dog ate a money clip with 500.00$...his dog passed that as well without incident for the dog...but for the BIL - it was a different story...

Good luck and keep us updated.

My first cattle dog pup ripped open a bag of quick setting cement and we didn't know whether she had eaten any. I had to give her enough salty water immediately to make her vomit. She was okay, so maybe she hadn't eaten any, but boy, did she scare me! LOL.

LOL... talk about dirty money, eh?
What kind of pins did he eat, safety pins? Sifting through for all 50, I can't even imagine!
And yes, I will monitor him close. They said if nothing happens in the next 48 hrs, all is well

LOL, wow... I was concerned because Nanook ate a few pebbles (which passed the next morning!). And I was freaked out over a cantaloupe rhind... Quick set cement, I'd have a heart attack for sure

Puppies are fast--something is always going to sneak through now and again, so don't kick yourself.

So how is the little devil tonight? Did he ever toss the rind? Still eating, drinking, pooping?

Yup! He's had 3 normal, solid bowel movements today. He's still got his appetite and is playful and cute. He was watching out the window and enjoying a beautiful thunderstorm with us tonight

3 days now without diahrrea. yay!! First time since we've gotten him

I know it's not toxic to him but it may be hard to digest. We had a black lab before and he loves fruit. When we fed him cantaloupe, we would find whole chunk of orange colored solids in his poop.
