I think my dog ate my wedding ring.

This could have happened from a week ago to two. Has anyone had this happen. I haven't seen any signs of him being sick, etc. Would a metal detector detect white gold? This is awful. 8 grand down the drain. :(

  • Examine the poop. He wouldn't get sick. He'd just poop it out. Not bashing but 8 grand ring is a large investment to just lay around so a dog can get. I am sure there is insurance on it so be more careful with the next one. If you don't have insurance on the ring itself then your homeowner's should cover it. It's gone. You don't know the dog ate it. Maybe someone stole it. Just a thought, if you don't wear it you might think of investing in a small but secure safe.

  • Your ring should pass in the poop.  However if this happened a week or two ago then the ring has probably already passed.  You could take the dog to the vet and have x-rays taken.  If the ring is anywhere in his digestive tract, it will show up.

  • Wait until he poop it out, or he may never poop it out, who knows!

  • thanks everyone. this dog is a new dog we rescued from poodle rescue about 5 years old (standard poodle) and has been here about 2 months. he didn't show some of his bad habits until recently. i always have put my rings on my dressor. he must have stood up there and got knocked them off when he stole a bowl of food i had up there. i am about to search the yard.

  • Ohhhhh NO! Bad doggie bad! Well cant blame em though, sparkly, expensive, and mmmmm yummy. lol. I had a dog that would eat my bras, and not once did she poop out the clasps from the backs.... Wonder if a huge diamond rock would be the same??? Go scavaging in your back yard through the doo doo. Should have already.... If you dont find it, ha blame it on the dog....

  • More than likely he will poop it when my daughter ate a quarter.

  • My dog ate my wedding set once (years ago, my first set, not expensive) I had to follow him around the yard for 4 days till he passed them. I'm afraid you'll have to go check the "cookies" he's left in the yard.
