My dog ate my wedding ring. :/

It's been 2 or 3 days since it happened. We didn't think he did at first, but after cleaning the entire house and noticing his stomach acting up, we're pretty sure that he did. He's a fairly large husky puppy and has always loved eating but this morning he just drank a bunch of water and didn't eat his food. He did have a couple treats though.



We barely have enough money to pay the bills, so it's scaring me that everything I've looked up says he needs an x-ray and other expensive things. Is there anything that I can try at home before taking him to the vet with a credit card haha.

  • make him drink hydrogen peroxide, it will make him puke, so put him somewhere that will be easy to clean.
    that's the only thing I can think of...but don't wait too long to take him to the vet. it could be obstructing his bowels and backing things up, and that's NOT good.

  • call the vet and ask. the call is free. Other than that, just try feeding him some tastier food so he can push it out....then again if they are obstructing this bowels you do have a problem. Call the vet anyway and ask if you can make payments.

  • It's been a couple days though, do you think he could still puke it up?

  • I dont know much about pets but I do know stuff like that do come out when they poop :)
    So if you know there's something safe you can give him to make him poop easier you'll probably see it in a day or so if he swallowed it in the first place. Good luck!

  • Shypaine, it's got two bands with small diamonds (nothing sticking out) and a pearl with small diamonds around it. What could I feed a dog to help him poop? Everything so far has been pretty loose from yesterday and today but he's still going.

  • You can give the dog dulcolax (stool softener) make sure you call the vet for dosing amounts

  • If he's pooping, then he isn't obstructed. He has probably already pooped it, or else it is sitting in his stomach, unable to move farther down. There really isn't much else you can do without knowing where the ring is. Try a metal detector? lol

  • I had a dog eat a diamond earring. I just limited him to where he could poop, waited for it to pass and took it covered in poo to a jewlery store and had them clean it.
