The title says it all. My aunt says to wait and if there are any weird symptoms, or vometing or diarrhea bring him to the vet. I will also call them in the morning. So what now?

A few months ago my foster swallowed a whole large Greenie. I called the emergency vet clinic, and they said just to keep an eye on her and make sure she was eating, drinking, and pooping okay. They said a blockage would start to show signs about 24 hours after swallowing something. They told me NOT to try to induce vomiting. My foster ended up not having a blockage, and the Greenie passed just fine. Hope that helps a little!

Do you know how much was left when he swallowed it?

Watch him close, and give him a big hug.

Definately call your vet first thing in the morning.

Well you just made me feel a little better that your foster dog swallowed a whole large greenie and it passed without problems. I pray to GOD Mack does the same! Thanks! :wink:

Ummm... the whole thing was left. Just chewed a little. He is crazy, I dont get it. No more chew toys for him...

So should I give him food and water like normal?

Alright I just got a minute at work to type this. Mack is doing fine so far, had a nice morning poop like usual and ate food. He is at work and seems to be fine. I talked to the vet earlier and they knew all about it and said the greenies are reformulated and should digest in theory. They said what I knew already, watch him closely. So thats what we are doing. I will keep everyone up to date. Thanks for the help it is greatly appreciated!

Sounds like he's doing ok. I'm glad.


I have stayed away from those things ever since my mom's dog had bowel obstruction.

Get him a nylabone to chew... They have different "resistances", ones like greenies that chew real easily, but their toughest ones... it takes Kate months and months to chew through half of one

LMFAO! :lol: I had the same kind of thought when I read that!

Hope everything comes out alright for Mack! I've heard so many awful things about Greenies that I don't even think of getting Annie some. I did get her a Busy Bone last weekend, and it was gone in a few hours. :shock:

I've never heard of a greenie. But by the looks of it I'll make sure not to get Kallie one b/c she loves to chew and eat her toys. About a week after we had her she was playing with a baseball and about 10 minutes later we looked for the ball and couldn't find it. She was mopping around like she had done something wrong so we knew that she had eaten but thank goodness she pooped it out with a few days. We were scared though. So I'm sure Mack will do the same thing.

Yeah...we let her play with it b/c we didn't think that she would chew it up that quickly but we learned our lesson. lol. We got real scared and called the vet and they told us to take away her food b/c if it was lodged in her digestive system the food would just back up. We felt bad taking her food away so we would give her a treat every 4 hours until she pooped it out. Now Kallie isn't allowed to play with baseballs...lol.

I was thinking that when I saw the pics of him in the photos section. Chico swallowed one once but it was the "old" dangerous version. He horked it back up the next day. Just keep a close watch on him, and get him a safer Chew!!!!! Those greenies aren't big enough for a big mouth like that! :lol:

I am going to get a Kong for him soon. Just to update he seems fine and is drinking and eating normally. Also his poop seems just fine... So I will just continue to watch him. No green yet so I am a little surprised about that. Should I still be worried about him?
