Concerned mommy needs help!
Okay, first off...I know that this is a cat forum, but I know there's some animal experts on here that can help. And everyone's been real helpful in the past with my cats so I thought that this was the best place to ask about my dog (plus I can't find a good dog forum...does anyone know of any?).
I have a 7 month old bichon frise who likes to chew on things....his mommy and daddy, wood, chew toys, his three feline siblings, and our computer chairs. Well, last night he did something new, he started chewing on wires.
We have a radio in our computer room and our dog started chewing on the electrical cord (ya know the cords that have the seam running down the middle so they have a left side and right side?). Well, he ate (as in swallowed) about an inch of one side of the cord.
Now I'm all panicky. He's done two doodles (i.e. #2) this morning and we've checked both thoroughly....we see the black coating from the cord but we don't see the copper wiring.
Should I rush him to the vet? Could this kill him? He's acting fine, he doesn't act sick or anything. Will it cut up his insides? Or will he just pass it eventually? Help!
(My dog growing up once ate several blue disposal razors and passed them. So everyone's telling me not to worry. But she was a black lab, my dog is a lot smaller. So I'm concerned.)
