Dogs are very curious and eat some extremely strange things - rubber toys, stones, socks, bones, knives and forks – the list is endless! Unfortunately, some of these items get lodged in their guts and cause a blockage.
Gut blockage is a very serious, painful condition that can kill a dog if it’s not treated quickly. If your dog swallows something that gets stuck inside them, it is likely that they will need an emergency operation to remove it.
Contact your vet immediately if you think your dog has eaten something they shouldn’t have.
