15 days!!! Eeek!

Tucker took almost 10 days to pass a small trainer sock. I got him checked by the vet and I was told to watch out for any signs of discomfort, diarrhoea, sickness, lack of appetite.....

Plastic bags can cause problems in their intestines as they can get twisted around... they tend to not show up on xrays unless they are causing a problem in the tubes or contain something that shows up a shape...it is good that she is ok in herself.

I guess it could have burst inside her, could've been a biodegradable bag working it's way through still, ... it may be that you may still be called upon to 'help' the bag exit her... have you had a vet examine her tum??

Hope she stays ok and the bag emerges soon so you can stop worrying!
