    Hi Ozeymum,

    Oh dear!

    Stick with veterinary advice here, esspecially re muzzling her.

    I would extend the amount of time she has inside with you all as well

    GOOD NEWS!! I felt her tummy thismorning and it's feeling much clearer!!! I went out and had a look at her stools and WOW, all the stones that have come out is unbelievable I am soo soo glad what the vet has given and advised me to do is working..no surgery..phew!

    We have fantisic dung beetles here so once they eaten all the poop, I'm going to bag the stones and show the vet when we go back next monday.

    I'm going out to look at muzzles today for when she's outside in the BIG yard.... I'll keep her in the smaller yard and she can come and go into the house as she pleases....fingers crossed she grows out of this stone eating!!!

    I have been looking at muzzles on ebay...and I have found this one

    Dog Muzzle Stress Free - (M-L) suits Pitbulls, etc. - eBay Other Supplies, Dogs, Pet Supplies, Home. (end time 13-Jan-09 20:40:26 AEDST)

    My pup is a bull arab so the greyhound type would be too slim for her head and I dont want the ones that keep their mouth closed so they can't pant.

    What do you think?

    Yes, we thought of a muzzle, but never actually used one. Especially after the dogs ate heaps of washed up bluebottles on a beach visit - that caused another panic! They just find everything and swallow it!

    Did your dogs have any affect from the bluebottles???....wow, thay would have been scary!!!


    I just wanted to report....Candy no-longer eats pebbles...wahoooo!!! LOL
    No muzzle needed anymore (after all the $$ I spent on one...lol, ohh well )
    She also doesn't gulp down her food like it's the last thing she'll eat anymore...she actually doesn't even finnish off her meals ..ever since I've had her, she's had her daily diet broken up into breaky and dinner...being a fast growing, stone eating pup who never chewed her food..just swallowed it!!, she always looked forward to her meals..but now it's no big deal to her and she leaves half of it each time....so I will slowly cut it down till it's just a night dinner where she'll eat it all (I'm not a fan of leaving uneaten food out all day for snacking...I'd rather they eat what they get when they get it...with 2 dogs on 2 diff foods, I have to make sure they both eat their OWN).

    There is one thing she still eats..and I've told the vet...she eats the fruit nut things from the palm trees!! The vet said this could cause her irritation and soft poo's, the nut seeds all come out in her poop so I see how many she has...arghhh! I try to cut the seeds down, but some are soo high, I can't get to them, then the bats come and drop em all over the ground during the night . So NO irritation..but soft poo's. I thought it was her food, but I have now realized it's these fruity nut things!

    Jett must have eaten about 15 or 20 bluebottles before I could catch him - Jazz only had a few. I rang the vet as soon as I got home, and he rang the poisons information people as he'd never heard of dogs eating bluebottles before. Turns out it's quite common. The main problem is getting stung when swallowing them. Jett was a bit uncomfortable for a couple of hours, then was miraculously ready to eat his dinner! So, no really nasty problems, thank heavens!
